4 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

READER SERVICES 

During fiscal year 1970/71 the State Library made its policy of serving 
the residents of the State through supporting supplementary loan and 
reference services to California libraries applicable equally throughout 
Caifornia with the discontinuance of its direct loan policy to Sacra- 
mento residents. The inflow of both loan and subject reference inqui- 
ries from libraries through the state continued to increase at a rapid 
rate. Increases also occurred in requests for services under the State 
Library's program for library services to California State Government. 
Work improvement programs to aid in handling the increases in inflow 
of requests included continued centralization of paging and shelving 
services and the beginnings of a centralized supporting public catalog 
searching service. 

Administrative-Legislative Reference Section 

Reference Service: ALR handled 13,587 reference transactions in 
1970/71. This figure is 1,328 (over 10%) greater than the previous year 
and represents the ninth year of consecutive increase. 

Training Programs and Conferences: ALR staff participated in the 
following meetings and training programs during the year: 

State Library rotation program 

Department of Education employee orientation program 

State Library ALR orientation 

Current developments in Library Reference tools — SLA 

BARC Workshop on reference services 

Supervision of non-professionals in library technical services work- 
shop 

SILC Reference inquiry workshop 

Supervisor's Forum 

State Archives tour 

State Library Association Conference 

California Library Association Legislative Committee meeting 

Legislative Processes course at UC Davis 

Departmental Library Consultant Program: The Librarian consulted 
with the staff of the following agencies regarding agency libraries: De- 
partment of Corrections, Department of Justice, California Highway 
Patrol Academy and the Department of Agriculture Chemistry Labora- 
tory. In addition, there were consultations regarding library collections 
with the Senate Natural Resources Committee and the Senate Office 
of Research. 

Books for the Blind and Physically Handicapped Section 

The outstanding occurrence this year was the beginning of a program 
to work with the public libraries of the State in expanding and improv- 
ing library service to blind and handicapped readers. A letter was sent 
to all the librarians asking them to name a contact librarian who would 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 5 

be responsible for providing information and help to persons in need 
of this service and to whom we could mail catalogs, informational circu- 
lars and brochures from agencies engaged in serving blind and hand- 
icapped readers. There was an enthusiastic response to this first mailing 
from 69 of the libraries and this is to be followed up with a second 
mailing within a few months to try to get cooperation from the libraries 
who overlooked the first mailing or were not in a position to participate 
for some reason. These libraries were all referred to the central mailing 
service to receive copies of Braille Book Review and Talking Book 
Topics regularly. Several are planning exhibits and demonstration pro- 
grams during the next fiscal year. 

The California State Library was one of about 100 agencies which 
were privileged to take part in the first Community Resources Fair held 
at Cal Expo on October 27th and 28, 1970. This was sponsored by the 
Sacramento Bee, Radio Station KFBK, and Television Station KOVR. 
The Section had a booth and exhibit manned by Section personnel. The 
professional staff of the Section attended the following conferences and 
meetings: 

The dedication of the new Braille Institute Library Building on Sep- 
tember 24th. 

The Western Region Conference of the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, September 
25th and 26th. 

A Symposium on Aging and Blindness sponsored by the American 
Association of Workers for the Blind in Los Angeles on April 23, 1970. 

Meetings: The Supervising Librarian attended the Western Regional 
Conference of Librarians for the Blind in Los Angeles January 20th- 
22nd, and the group attended the Round Table on Library Service for 
the Blind at the American Library Association on one afternoon. Re- 
gional librarians attended from the twelve western states, and from the 
Library of Congress — Division for the Blind and Physically Hand- 
icapped the following persons: Robert S. Bray, Chief; James M. Hahn, 
Assistant Chief for Reader Services; Ralph Garretson, Technical Offi- 
cer. 

On February 17th Mrs. Simpson spoke to a Senior Citizen's group at 
the Faith United Methodist Church in Sacramento, and attended the 
annual conference of the California Transcribers and Educators of the 
Visually Handicapped at the Sheraton Hotel in San Diego on March 
10th through the 12th. She took part in a panel discussion along with Mr. 
Bray of the Library of Congress; Mr. Don Staley, National Director — 
Recording for the Blind; Mr. Carl Lappin, American Printing House for 
the Blind; Kirsten Vanderberg, a resource teacher; and Mrs. Elizabeth 
Schriefer, a volunteer braille transcriber. Mr. Fred Sinclair, Clearing 
House Depository for the Visually Handicapped was chairman of the 
panel. 

The weeding of the talking book collection continued in order to 
make room for the new talking book titles being received. 1,528 contain- 
ers were returned to the Library of Congress Reserve collection; 312 
containers were sent to the new Kansas Regional Library; 1,687 contain- 



6 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

ers were scrapped; and 4,401 containers were placed in our Reserve 
Collection and will be used to furnish deposit collections to public 
libraries. 

California Section 

Services: Researchers from all parts of California continue to be 
drawn to the Section by the richness of its holdings, and during the year 
acknowledgement for assistance was made in a dozen or more new 
books on California subjects. In addition to these more publicized serv- 
ices, the Section worked on hundreds of routine mail and teletype 
queries to verify a birth, identify a painter, find a portrait of someone, 
run down a news item from an old newspaper, list references to some 
half-forgotten event, locate a company, supply a particlar book or infor- 
mation on such diverse California subjects as baseball teams, Indian 
language, theatres, lumbering, restaurant menus, minority groups, 
cheesemaking, covered bridges, etc. 

In a move to unify public service, the Section joined the Library's 
centralized shelving and paging program operated from the central 
Loan Desk. 

The head of the Section served with a group of statewide leaders in 
historical research and preservation to assist the State Department of 
Parks and Recreation develop a history plan by which the Department 
hopes to share in federal funds allotted to states for preservation and 
interpretation of historic sites. 

Staff members spoke to the Sacramento Optimist Club on the history 
of California ballots, the Sacramento Book Collectors Club on California 
children's diaries in the Section, sketched the history of California to a 
group of young Brazilian businessmen on a two-months field study of 
northern California industry and agriculture, and participated in the 
Mercy High School vocational study day. 

Meetings: The Section was represented at the Symposium of Histori- 
cal Societies of Northern California and Southern Oregon in Redding, 
the California Library Association convention in Los Angeles, a meet- 
ing of the Western Association of Map Librarians in Oakland, the Fifth 
National Colloquium on Oral History at Asilomar, the Congress of His- 
tory in San Diego, the History Institute at Stockton, and the meeting 
of the Conference of California Historical Societies in Oakland. 

Acquisitions: The first step in a proposed oral history program by the 
Section was taken with the tape recording of an interview with a retired 
Sacramento riverboat captain. 

A collection of 15 large scrapbooks of newspaper clippings covering 
the state development of roads in California during the period of 1894- 
1907 is an important addition to information on highway development. 

Being repaired and processed for use are 49 volumes of clothing 
accounts and other records of members of the California Volunteers 
serving during the period 1861-1866. 

Among other historical items added may be mentioned a ledger kept 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 7 

by a Plumas County mine surveyor 1867-1872, the register of the St. 
George Hotel in Volcano, 1880-1897, the business journal of Jones & 
Givens, barbed wire agents in Sacramento, 1888-1893, account books of 
the Central Eureka Mining Co., Amador County, 1869-1884, the ac- 
count book of a Sacramento real estate agent, 1852-1863, 12 diaries and 
related material kept by William Berry Cross, 1847-1891, for 30 years of 
which he was an engineer for the California Steam Navigation Co. 

Just acquired is the lifelong collection of notes and research papers 
of the late Hero Eugene Rensch, recognized as the chief author of 
Historic Spots in California. 

Training: Various members of the staff attended a genealogy work- 
shop in San Francisco, a symposium in San Leandro on non-profession- 
als in technical services, a workshop in the State Library on reference 
work, a program in Palo Alto on technical services, and a meeting in San 
Francisco on archives. 

Exhibits: A continuing exhibit that has won the interest and assistance 
of many patrons is a changing display of unidentified pictures of Califor- 
nians and California views. Other exhibits have featured material on 
the effect of Calif or nians on their environment, and displays of California 
sheet music and representative prints from the work of California art- 
ists. 

Circulation Section 

A new policy of granting stack privileges to a limited number of 
patrons was developed and put into effect on July 1, 1971. On April 1, 
1971, the paging and shelving functions formerly performed by the 
California Section were transferred to the Circulation Section. To as- 
sure a smooth transition, with no loss of service to the patrons, the staff 
participated in a training session prior to assuming their new duties. 

In December 1970 the supervisor in the Circulation Section attended 
a workshop on Library Research conducted by representatives from 
the Selected Information and Library Center, San Diego. 

Support searching service on interlibrary loan requests was also ini- 
tiated by the Circulation Section, giving assistance on a regular basis to 
the Reference Section by the pages during times when they are on 
paging duty and in between paging books as their time permits. 

Government Publications Section 

Acquisitions: Increased efforts were made during the year to obtain 
titles requested by interlibrary loan or individual borrowers but not in 
the collection, if necessary, through borrowing a copy and reproducing 
it. Several form letters were sent requesting certain categories of publi- 
cations. Reports of U.S. companies to the Securities and Exchange Com- 
mission were acquired in microfiche. 

Reference: The number of interlibrary reference inquiries received 
increased over the preceding year, and also the level of difficulty. Em- 
phasis was placed upon obtaining the answer — from any available

source — going direct to a government agency if the information sought 
was not found in printed publications. A questionnaire was sent to a 
large number of libraries and organizations in California to collect data 
on information resources within the state in order to make knowledgea- 
ble referrals. The Section was designated a 1970 census summary tape 
information center. 

Library Distribution Act: In addition to answering many inquiries, 
both in person and by mail, the librarian for California state publica- 
tions visited 19 libraries and spoke at a meeting of documents librarians. 
Several additional new depositories for California state publications 
were approved. A list of serials currently issued by state agencies was 
compiled and published as part 2 of the annual cumulation California 
State Publications. A two-day workshop was held for staffs of depository 
libraries. The principal topics were legislative publications and the ac- 
quistion of California state publications. Many contacts were made with 
state agencies by phone, memos, and visits to explain the depository 
program and to encourage agencies to deposit non-printed materials in 
the State Library and other complete depositories. The Section con- 
tinued to work with the Department of General Services for further 
improvement in the LDA program. 

U.S. Regional Depository: The principal activities of the Section as a 
U.S. regional depository were providing information and interlibrary 
loan service and assisting other depositories to dispose of their no- 
longer-wanted U.S. government publications. 

GPS Publications Series: Two numbers in the series were issued: 
"Pollution; a Checklist of California State Agency Publication, 1960- 
1970", compiled by Lorna Flesher (No. 6) and "California State Infor- 
mation Sources Today (1970)" by Ruth Elwonger (No. 7). 

Training: In addition to training sessions on reference resources and 
technical services held within the Section, members of the staff attend- 
ed meetings or institutes on technical processes, new reference tools, 
BARC, the reference inquiry, archives, maps, driver training, letter- 
writing, library technical assistants, and new equipment. 

Reference Section 

Training Given: The Reference Section trained a student for one 
month as part of an in-service training for the Library Technical Assist- 
ant course at American River College. Also, an intern from the Univer- 
sity of Washington Library School spent a month in Reference 
receiving in-service training. 

Training Received: The Section Supervisor attended a three-day 
seminar on effective group leadership given by the Training Division 
of the State Personnel Board. The Section's Library Technical Assistant 
I attended Supervisors Forum. 

Equipment: The State Library added a Xerox Telefacsimile machine 
to the Graphic Sciences machine we already had. We now have the 
capability of transmitting and receiving from anyone who has Graphic 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 9 

Sciences, Xerox or Magnafax. 

Services: Inflow of both author and subject reference interlibrary 
request continued to increase steadily. Assistance in keeping abreast of 
the increased inflow was provided by the initiation of a supporting 
public catalog search service provided by the pages in the Circulation 
Section during periods when they have free time available. 

CSLSI (California State Library Service to Industry) 

Services: The use of the service to industry continued to expand. The 
number of subject requests for which information was supplied was 
approximately twice as great as for the fiscal year 1969-1970. In order 
to ease the work load on the Service to Industry, procedures were 
changed in the fall of 1970 and only requests specifically marked CSLSI 
are now completed by this section. Even so, 4,835 requests for author- 
title items were processed. This is a ten-fold increase over the number 
processed in 1968-1969. 

Publications: The State Library published the proceedings of Work- 
shops on Library Service to Industry held in June of 1970. 

Visits to Libraries: The CSLSI Librarian visited the following libraries 
in the Los Angeles and the San Francisco Area: 

Stanford Business School Library 

Hewlett-Packard, Technical Library 

Aerospace Technical Library 

North American Technical Library 

Price Waterhouse, Technical Library 

C. F. Braun Engineering, Technical Library 

Hunt- Wesson Foods, Technical Library 

Beckman Instruments, Technical Library 

Los Angeles Public Library, Business and Economics Division 

Los Angeles Public Library, Science, Technical and Patents 

San Francisco Public Library 

San Jose Public Library, Business and Economics Division 

The objective of these visits was to learn the resources available in 
some of the libraries of the state and to acquaint librarians with the 
services available to them through the California State Library Service 
to Industry. 

Meetings: The CSLSI Librarian attended meetings and the annual 
conference of the Special Libraries Association and gave speeches to 
members of this group as well as at the San Francisco Public Library 
on the subject of the services available through CSLSI. 

Training: The CSLSI Librarian attended courses sponsored by the 
Special Libraries Association, on "Current Developments in Library 
Reference Tools", and on "Participation and Persuasion Techniques." 



10 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

Sutro Library 

During the year Sutro Branch profited from the Unversity of Oregon 
Library School's Summer Internship program. Two MLS candidates 
with specialization in manuscripts and archives gained work experi- 
ence by helping to catalog the Sir Joseph Banks Papers. 

A new reference too for researchers in Sutro Library resources was 
produced by J. Carlyle Parker, Assistant Librarian, Stanislaus State Col- 
lege, Turlock, and the Modesto Genealogical Library. It is a microfilm 
(available for purchase by libraries and interested individuals) of Sutro 
Library's shelf list in genealogy, local history, heraldry, et al. 

Perhaps the outstanding exhibit of the year was on the subject of 
Africa. It was composed of books, manuscripts, pictures and maps, all 
old and rare, from the Branch. Classes in African History from both 
University of San Francisco and Lone Mountain (San Francisco College 
for Women) toured the show and there were modest notices of it in the 
City shopping papers and the Chronicle. The display attracted consid- 
erable public attention. 

Another interesting exhibit was the salute to Albrecht Diirer in the 
USF Library. Sutro Library cooperated with USF and the German 
Consulate General and contributed on loan its two very rare pirated 
editions of the incunabulum Nuremberg Chronicle. 

Considerable microfilming of American, English, Mexican and He- 
brew books and manuscripts was done for researchers throughout the 
year, in addition to the Branch's usual reference and interlibrary loan 
services. 

TECHNICAL SERVICES BUREAU 

The reduction in staff of the Technical Services Bureau as well as the 
economic freeze on filling vacant positions and purchasing new equip- 
ment added new constraints to the over-all activities of the Bureau. 

A full time librarian position was assigned to the automation project 
to identify areas suitable for mechanization or automation. Also, a sys- 
tems analyst from the Department of General Services worked 
throughout the year on the project. 

The Technical Services Bureau as well as the entire State Library 
suffered a great loss in the month of May with the death of Edith Irwin, 
Supervising Acquisitions Librarian. Miss Irwin had worked for the State 
Library since 1950. 

Acquisitions Section 

Monographs: The number of items acquired by gift or purchase and 
processed in this unit — 13,CKX) — represents a decrease of approximately 
ten percent from the previous year, a drop attributable to insufficient 
book funds. At the same time, over 3,000 desired items could not be 
afforded within the budget. As a result staff had more time than has 
usually been available to complete the processing of backlogs, and the 
number of still unprocessed gift items was reduced significantly. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 11 

Serials: This unit also experienced budget problems. Approximately 
150 new periodical and 120 new continuation titles were added to the 
collection, a decrease of 90 and 40 titles, respectively, from the previous 
fiscal year. 

The change in lending policy for art reproductions relieved the Peri- 
odicals Reading Room staff from some workload and responsibilities. 

The accession records of the State Library from 1860 to 1939, bound 
in 62 volumes, were transferred to State Archives. 

Acquisitions Section staff cooperated on a directory project spon- 
sored and undertaken by the Bay Area Business Librarians. 

Book Repair Section 

Binding: The reinforcing of materials for library use maintained its 
production level this fiscal year even though one position was lost in the 
1970-71 budget. Clipboards or cloth bindings were provided for 1,486 
items, tagboards and pamphlet binders for 5,046 pieces, and duracovers 
for 1,100 paperback books that did not require a more permanent bind- 
ing. 

Processing and Repairing: 24,904 new items were processed and add- 
ed to the various book collections of the State Library. The most notable 
reduction in completed work took place in the repair of books damaged 
in circulation. Only 3,500 volumes were repaired, of which 50 percent 
involved extensive repair and complete rebinding. 

Special Workload: The oiling and polishing of leather-bound volumes 
continued with 5,461 volumes receiving this protective treatment. Pa- 
per cutting and report collating and stapling required in excess of 900 
manhours. Training hours were almost tripled due to new staff mem- 
bers, retirements and transfers. 

Catalog Section 

Output: The Catalog Section maintained its production rate during 
the fiscal year 1970-71 even with one-third of the authorized positions 
remaining unfilled. The total number of new titles, including new seri- 
als cataloged and classified was 9,193. 577 titles were recataloged and 
reclassified. Withdrawals included 797 art prints and 300 bound 
volumes. During the year the Section reproduced 23,868 card sets, 
including, in addition to its own work, card sets for the Law Library, 
Administrative Legislative Reference, and the Government Publica- 
tions Section. 

Backlog: 

The backlog in both Catalog Section and its Union Catalog unit in- 
creased during the year. The Catalog Section has 7,537 titles to catalog; 
the Union Catalog has 324,705 cards to file and 94,302 cards to withdraw. 

Changes: The Section moved and consolidated its work area to ac- 
commodate the expansion of the Processing Center into the southwest 
corner of the fourth floor. Several new work procedures were inaugu- 



12 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

rated during the year including: 

a. Assigning a backlog number to each book for which cataloging 
copy is not available on initial search and filing the order slip in the 
proof slip file. Since this searching method changed, the book 
production has increased by 100 to 150 new titles monthly. 

b. Eliminating the pre-preliminary file for Union Catalog cards and 
consolidating all backlogs into one file. 

c. Substituting a series authority card for numerous added entries 
cards in the Sections's official catalog. Separate added entry cards 
are maintained for the public catalogs. 

Union Catalog Unit: Eighty-one member libraries contributed a total 
of 353,482 cards to the Union Catalog during the year. 341,173 cards 
were filed and 609 cards were withdrawn. Total entries now in the Main 
File number 2,039,917. From 267 titles listed in List of Unlocated Books 
153 were found for interlibrary loan requests. 

Photo Services Section 

Total production of the Photo Services Section declined noticeably 
this year compared to preceding years, due mainly to a staff shortage 
and increased workload. The Section has been without its second photo- 
copyist position for the past two years which affects the productive 
capacity of the section. 

Bound volumes of California newspapers were filmed, producing 122 
rolls or 11,555 feet of processed microfilm. A 12% decrease in photo- 
graphic work and a 32% reduction in photostats are represented by the 
Section's production of 1,569 units of photographic work and 1,141 
photostats. Xerox copies continued its annual increase to 69,073 units 
reproduced by Photo Services in addition to the copies made by the 
individual sections. 

Newspaper handling, processing and repair of movie film, as well as 
the maintenance of the various copying machines in the library, re- 
mained at the same level. During the year a new microfiche reader- 
printer was acquired to make hard copy from the growing collection of 
microfiche. 

Processing Center 

The Processing Center processed and shipped 136,719 volumes for 59 
member libraries during the fiscal year. 

The number of new fiction titles cataloged equaled 2,217; nonfiction 
33,280 titles representing an increase of more than 10,000 titles over the 
previous fiscal year. The Center also reproduced and finished 97,389 
card sets for Sacramento City-County Library compared to the 80,000 
card sets prepared in the prior year. 

Additional space was obtained through moving a portion of the staff 
working with order control, invoice processing and bibliographic 
searching into the southwest corner of the fourth floor previously oc- 
cupied by the official catalog of the State Library. The night shift begun 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 13 

in the previous year has continued. 

Fifty-one libraries have contracted for Processing Center services for 
1971-72 with an estimated workload of 160,000 processed volumes. 

Property and Shipping Section 

The Section handled 318,599 incoming shipments and 296,306 outgo- 
ing shipments during the fiscal year. In addition to the shipping activi- 
ties the Section reproduced, addressed and mailed in excess of 700,000 
State Library publications. Other activities included the purchasing of 
equipment and services as well as purchasing, storing and filling supply 
requests. The overall activities of the Section increased approximately 
3.5% over the previous year. 

The Section weeded and reshelved the entire Braille and Talking 
Book collections to open space for new titles provided by the Library 
of Congress. A portion of the Talking Book collection was relocated in 
the newspaper stack room for future use in establishing deposit collec- 
tions. 

The master shift to arrange the State Library's book collections for 
open stack use was continued. Activities were confined mainly to stack 
levels two, three and four. The installation of carrell desks on each stack 
floor was completed. Security gates were installed on three stack floors 
to protect collections of valuable manuscripts, books and government 
documents. 



LAW LIBRARY 

The most striking change from the previous year has been the result 
of revised prison library regulations. Interlibrary loans of legal materials 
to prisons increased 55% over 1969/70. 

Sixteen county law libraries were visited, and a survey and report was 
made for the Sutter and Yuba County Law Libraries. Prison libraries 
and law school libraries were also visited. 

The Law Librarian participated on panels at meetings of the Correc- 
tional Librarians and of the Western Pacific Chapter, American As- 
sociation of Law Libraries. He also spoke on the use of law books in 
public libraries, for the Bay Area Reference Center. 

Training Classes were held for a group of state investigators, and 
individual two-week courses given for two county law librarians. 

In addition to routine publications, the following bibliographies were 
issued: Recognition of Foreign Judgements and Judicial Assistance; 
Capital Punishment (supplement); Strikes and Boycotts; Congestion 
and Delay in the Courts; and Reapportionment. 

Acquisitions of note in enhancing interlibrary loan service were the 
Dictionary Catalog of the Columbia Law School Library, and the Cata- 
logue of International Law and Relations of the Harvard Law School 
Library. 

The year's accessions bring the law library collection to 146,636 
volumes.

LIBRARY CONSULTANT SERVICES 

Travel Statistics and Visitors to the Consultant Services 

Two Consultants were added to the staff during the year, and one 
consultant retired. The Consultants made 574 visits to 93 public, special 
and State institutional libraries during the year. Recurring visits to 
many of the public libraries were necessary, particularly those receiv- 
ing Library Services and Construction Act and public Library Services 
Act grants. Library system operation activities continued to demand 
considerable attention of the Consultants. 

In addition to the regular work with the libraries and librarians 
through visits, correspondence and calls, there were 43 visits made to 
the Library Consultant Bureau by librarians, library governing officials, 
foreign visitors, and others interested in public library or institutional 
library services. 

Special Studies and Publications 

One special study was completed during the year: 
Personal Organization of the Metropolitan Cooperative Library Sys- 
tem, a Study with Recommendations, by Margaret Ward, May 1971. 

Regular Bureau publications included the Salary Information Service 
compilations and quarterly issues of News Notes of California Libraries. 
The Summer, 1970 issue of News Notes contained a series of reports on 
information, reference and research networks being developed in the 
state, and the Fall issue was devoted to the subject of Total Library 
Services for California. The Winter, 1971 issue was the annual Statistics 
and Directory Issue; it was followed by a special supplement containing 
the papers and proceedings of the Symposium on Information Sources 
for Career Exploration held in Los Angeles in November, 1970. The 
Spring, 1971 issue examined some aspects of the theme of Libraries and 
Legislation. 

Library Services and Construction Act, Title I, Services 

The seventh year of the Library Services and Construction Act pro- 
gram brought a continuation of federal spending cuts that reduced the 
funds for both continuing and new programs contributing to total li- 
brary service and public library development in California. Reference 
center services were considered to be a priority under the State Plan. 
Grant funds were made available for continuing reference center pro- 
grams including the Black Gold Cooperative Library System, the Los 
Angeles Public Library's Southern California Answering Network 
(SCAN), the Metropolitan Cooperative Library System, the Mountain 
Valley Library System's Information and Communications Network, 
the North Bay Cooperative Library System and the San Francisco Pub- 
lic Library's cooperative effort in the Bay Area Reference Center 
(BARC) project. 

New reference center programs included Berkeley-Oakland Service 
System's Strengthening the Regional Reference Network, Camino Real 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 15 

Library System and Santa Clara Valley Library System's joint South Bay 
Area Reference Network, East Bay Cooperative Library System's Im- 
proving Reference Capacities of Area Libraries, 49-99 Cooperative Li- 
brary System's Reference Resources Network, Inland Library System's 
Reference Project, Monterey Bay Area Cooperative Library System's 
Reference Project, North State Cooperative Library System's Refer- 
ence Network Extension Services, Peninsula Library System's Refer- 
ence Project, San Joaquin Valley Library System's Demonstration 
Reference Project, and Santiago Library System's Reference Network. 

Priority under the State Plan was assigned also to funding for Out- 
reach programs. Those continuing were Los Angeles Public Library's 
Services to the Culturally Deprived, Shut-Ins and Community Aides 
Project, San Francisco Public Library's South of Market Area Demon- 
stration, and San Mateo County's Services to East Palo Alto Project. 

New Outreach projects were granted to the Berkeley-Oakland Serv- 
ice System's Operation Outreach, Black Gold Cooperative Library Sys- 
tem's Outreach Project, Camino Real Library System and Santa Clara 
Valley Library System's Services to Senior Adults, Shut-Ins and the 
Handicapped, 49-99 Cooperative Library System's Project Outreach, 
Long Beach Public Library's Enrichment Program of Service to the 
Disadvantaged, Los Angeles Public Library's Service to the "Un- 
served," Peninsula Library System's Services to Institutions and In- 
dividuals Confined to Private Homes and Book-Power Bus, San Joaquin 
Valley Library System's Biblioteca Ambulante, Santiago Library Sys- 
tem's Outreach Program, and Serra Library System's "Que Sera" Out- 
reach Project. 

Continuing projects were funded which included the Nevada County 
Library Demonstration and the Oakland Public Library's Latin Ameri- 
can Library. The California State Library again offered to the library 
systems, established under the California Public Library Services Act, 
the opportunity to conduct intern programs during the summer of 1971. 
Seven systems and nineteen interns participated. The California State 
Library also awarded two $1,000 grants to assist two former participants, 
in its Summer Intern Program, to complete their graduate library 
school education. 

One new Title I project was funded late in fiscal 1971 for a Lake 
County demonstration. Lake County is one of the two remaining Cali- 
fornia counties not having county-wide library service. The two-year 
demonstration will initiate such a service through bookmobile service, 
mail-order service and enrichment of all communities in the county. 

Federal Title I funds ended, at the close of fiscal 1971, for the follow- 
ing: the joint Young Adult Program of the Santa Clara County Library 
System and Camino Real Library System; the Lassen County Coopera- 
tive Reference Program across state boundaries with the Washoe Coun- 
ty, Nevada, Library with their California-Nevada Interstate 
Cooperative Demonstration Project; the Metropolitan Cooperative Li- 
brary System's "The Library and the Economic Community" Project, 
and Richmond Public Library's Service Center Services Project.

Library Services and Construction Act, Title II, Construction 

California's Title II allocation for the year 1971 was $326,523. This 
figure, reduced from the previous year's amount, allowed for the fund- 
ing of only one grant, to the Ukiah-Mendocino County Library Head- 
quarters Project. 

Library Services and Construction Act, Title III, Interlibrary Cooperation 

Title III funds were allocated to the Black Gold Cooperative Library 
System's continuing project for a cooperative information network be- 
tween all types of libraries called TIE (Total Interlibrary Exchange) in 
the system area. TIE included 65 libraries at the end of fiscal 1971. 

Three new projects were funded. The California- Arizona Interstate 
Cooperative Library Services Demonstration included the Serra Li- 
brary System, the Libraries of Imperial County, and the Yuma Public 
Library, Yuma, Arizona. This project was to provide library services to 
the residents of the eastern region of Imperial County, California, and 
the western region of Arizona (Yuma City-County area) . Services to be 
offered included reference, interlibrary loan and bookmobile. The 49- 
99 Cooperative Library System's Central Associates of Libraries net- 
work aimed to bring together all types of libraries existing in the five 
county area of Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Stanislaus and San Joa- 
quin, for the purpose of identifying and organizing activities and serv- 
ices which will benefit through a cooperative approach. The third new 
project was that of the North State Cooperative Library System involv- 
ing representation from all types df libraries in the 32,000 square miles 
of northern California. Action has been initiated on a union list of 
periodicals, a periodical reference service, a copying service, a re- 
sources directory, and film service. 

Title III funds ended for the 49-99 Cooperative Library System's 
project for developing a cooperative plan for a service network of 
periodical resources that included all types of libraries in the five coun- 
ty area. 

Library Services and Construction Act, Title IV A, State Institutional Library Services, 
and Title IVB, Library Services to the Physically Handicapped 

Funds allocated to California for State Institutional Library Services 
allowed continuation of projects to two hospitals, Agnews and Atas- 
cadero, and one Youth Authority institution, Los Guilucos School for 
Girls. All but Agnews were cooperative programs with the local public 
library systems. 

Three new projects were funded. Two were in correctional institu- 
tions: the California Men's Colony Inmate Library's project to: Attain 
Standards Recommended by the Library Manual of the Department of 
Corrections; and the California Rehabilitation Center at Corona's pro- 
gram for: Vocational Information and Motivation Services. The third 
new project was the Pacific State Hospital's Patient's Library: Listening 
Center for the Mentally Retarded. 

Federal Title IVA funds ended, at the close of fiscal 1971, for three 
correctional institutions (California Conservation Center, California 
Men's Colony, and the Correctional Training Facility) , and one hospi- 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 17 

tal, Metropolitan State Hospital. 

Title IVB funds permitted three new projects: Long Beach Public 
Library's Library Service to the Visually Handicapped; Santa Barbara 
Public Library's Service to the Handicapped Children, and San Mateo 
County Library's Service to the Physically Handicapped in Institutions. 

At the close of fiscal 1971 funds ended for the 49-99 Cooperative 
Library System's Library Services to the Blind and Physically Hand- 
icapped through a Large Print Book Library. 

Public Library Services Act 

The Public Library Services Act, in operation since 1963, has as its 
purpose the granting of state funds to public library systems for the 
improvement of library service to the public. 

During the few years that the Public Library Services Act has been 
in existence, 132 California public libraries have formed into 21 library 
systems to bring better library service to the public. 

This state aid program is coordinated through the Library Consultant 
Services Office, and consultants from this office provide advisory serv- 
ice to librarians over the state in the planning and implementation of 
system programs. 

The number of public libraries in this program has increased rapidly, 
but the state appropriations for the program have not increased signifi- 
cantly. As a result, a number of the library systems have been forced 
to cut services which had been initiated when systems were formed. 

Additional public libraries participated in the Public Library Services 
Act for the first time in 1970-71. The Beverly Hills Public Library, the 
Downey Public Library, and the Glendale Public Library joined the 
Metropolitan Cooperative Library System. The Watsonville Public Li- 
brary joined the Monterey Bay Area Cooperative Library System. The 
Alpine County Library and the Yolo County Library joined the Moun- 
tain-Valley Library System. The Eureka Public Library and the Hum- 
boldt County Library joined the North State Library System. The Santa 
Ana Public Library joined the Santiago Library System. The Serra Sys- 
tem had the largest number of new members during 1970-71, with the 
addition of the Brawley Public Library, the Calexico Public Library, the 
El Centro Public Library, and the Imperial Public Library. 

The total state appropriation for 1970-71 grants from the Public Li- 
brary Services Act was $1,000,000.

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES ANNUAL STATISTICS 

California library law specifies that the State Librarian shall "collect 
and preserve statistics and other information pertaining to libraries, 
which shall be available to other libraries within the State applying for 
the information." 

Such statistics are supplied, in tabular form, in the pages immediately 
following. Permanent files of the annual reports from which the statis- 
tics are compiled are maintained in the State Library's Consultant Serv- 
ices Bureau. 

Definitions 

A single library system includes the central library and other outlets 
if one jurisdiction, together with all its affiliated libraries and their 
outlets, and any library service points operated by the jurisdiction, by 
contract, to serve another jurisdiction or jurisdictions. Other definitions 
of library system, as they legally apply to the implementation of the 
Public Library Services Act of 1963, are given in Education Code Divi- 
sion 20, Chapter 1.5, Article 5, Section 27125. 

The term public library includes city, county, and district libraries 
which have been legally established by public officials, are supported 
by income from taxation or other public funds, and have their own 
trustee or other civil governing body. 

An outlet is any service point, such as a central library, affiliated 
library, branch, station, or bookmobile station that, as an integral part 
of the public library system, distributes books or otherwise renders 
library service to the public. 

An affiliated public library is a regularly established city or district 
library which has joined the county library for supplementary service. 
The city or district library retains its own trustees or other governing 
body, and the city makes an appropriation for this local public library 
in addition to paying the county library tax. 

A branch (according to California Public Library Service Standards) 
is a basic library unit operating as part of a library system and with its 
services available to the public some part of five days a week. It is 
located in quarters with floor area of not less than 1,400 square feet, 
housing a general collection of at least 7,000 volumes. It has a staff 
equivalent to at least one professional and one non-professional em- 
ployee on duty during time the branch is open to the public. 

A station is a library unit smaller than a branch and operating as part 
of a library system. A branch housed in a school but giving service to 
the whole community is counted as a community agency; a school 
agency affiliated for school service, as a school agency. 

Circulation represents statistics kept of actual count according to an 
established system. Total circulation of book materials is the count of 
one for each bound volume, pamphlet, or periodical lent for home use, 
from the central library and its agencies, and the count of each renewal. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 19 

A county library also includes the circulation of county library books 
from all its agencies, including affiliated libraries, which do not include 
such count in their own annual report totals. 

The collection and circulation of nonbook materials is counted sepa- 
rately from that of book materials. The unit count of all types of sound 
recording is by album, of films, by title. Circulation of all such miscella- 
neous materials is one for each unit lent. For example, the count of 
recordings is by album, regardless of record speed or numbers of titles 
on a recording. The count of films is by title, and circulation is equiva- 
lent to the number of times a film title is in use for showings, regardless 
of the number of persons in the audience for such showings. 

Interlibrary loans are loans between libraries which do not form part 
of a system. (Such intrasystem loans are included under Shipments.) 
Circulation by the borrowing library of a book borrowed on interlibrary 
loan is included in circulation; the interlibrary loan itself is not. 

A shipment from the central library is a group of items sent to one 
outlet at one time. 

The count of employees is by total number. Professional employees 
are defined as those who are college or university and library school 
graduates, and those who attained professional status through library 
experience and /or examination. They perform work of professional 
grade which requires training and skill in the theoretical or scientific 
parts of library work (as distinguished from its merely mechanical 
parts). If paid from the library budget, janitors and building force are 
included in the total count of employees. 

Operating expenses axe divided into three major categories: Salaries, 
library materials, service and supplies. The last contains a sub-category, 
payment of funds for contract services and system membership. 

Capital expenses include only such major outlay items as buildings, 
sites, additions, remodeling and major repairs, and new furniture and 
equipment purchased for new or enlarged buildings. Expenditures for 
replacement furniture and equipment, and for mobile equipment, are 
listed under operating expenses, as are also books and other library 
materials.

26 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

CALIFORNIA PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEMS GROUPED BY 
POPULATION OF AREA TAXED AND SERVED 

Grouping of public libraries on the basis of population served follows 
to some extent the classification of libraries employed in the Public 
Library Inquiry and specifications in the Public Library Service Stand- 
ards for California. 

This listing of all public libraries runs together county, district, and 
municipal libraries within the five groups of population they serve. 

It should be noted, therefore, that the statistics for an individual 
library affiliated with a larger library will appear only under the larger 
population group of the entire library system (i.e., the total population 
served by all affiliated municipal or district libraries, or such as two 
county libraries). 

Since population figures are for area taxed and served, the population 
listed for a county library does not include population of cities or dis- 
tricts (in that county) operating independent and unaffiliated public 
libraries. Population figures of affiliated libraries are, therefore, listed 
in parentheses to indicate that they have been included in the popula- 
tion figure for the larger service unit or library system. 

The basic population figure, that for the fiscal year of report, for each 
library jurisdiction is based on the 1960 U.S. Census, a special census 
taken by the U.S. Department of Commerce, or an estimate prepared 
by the Department of Finance of the State of California, whichever was 
most recent at the close of the preceding fiscal year. 

The grouping of libraries on the basis of population served and the 
treatment of populations served by libraries affiliated with county li- 
braries does not apply to cooperative library systems established under 
the California Public Library Services Act of 1963 and to the member 
libraries of those systems. For present reporting purposes, public librar- 
ies which are now members of cooperative library systems are still 
grouped as they have been in past years, on the basis of the population 
served within the local taxing area.

The above chart is based on statistical tables I-A through V-C and differs from the arrangement of libraries 
on the chart, California Public Libraries Arranged by County. 

The count of 172 systems equals the count of independent libraries (through which 18 other libraries are 
served, through affiliation). The count of 190 public libraries includes 172 independent libraries and 18 
affiliated libraries. For purposes of the chart above, the two counties served by contract by other counties 
are counted as affiliated county libraries (Mariposa and Sierra), as are similarly three of the counties 
served by contract by city libraries (Riverside, San Joaquin and Santa Cruz). The county and city 
libraries giving service (Merced and Plumas Counties; Riverside, Stockton and Santa Cruz cities) are 
included above as independent libraries. The three city libraries which give service to Santa Barbara 
County are treated as independent libraries and included above in the population groups (including 
county area served) in which they are listed on the statistical charts. 

Changes in library organization subsequent to the close of the fiscal year 1970-71 are not shown in the above 
chart.

VOLUME 67, NO. 1, WINTER, 1972 75 

CLASS TITLES 

In the attempt to use a fairly uniform terminology for professional 
library classes, we define class titles in common use in terms of the 
following general duty statements that suggest the various levels of 
personnel classification: 

Professional Employee — An employee in a position which requires col- 
lege or university education and library school graduation, and per- 
formance of work of a grade which necessitates training and skill in 
the theoretical or scientific parts of library work (as distinguished 
from its mechanical parts) . Applies to all classes in this list. 

Assistant Librarian — Professional employee who coordinates the work 
of section supervisors or principal librarians, assuming a major por- 
tion of planning and policy-making for the library as a whole. 

Branch Librarian — Professional employee in charge of an auxiliary li- 
brary agency which has separate quarters, a permanent staff, a regu- 
lar schedule and a permanent basic collection of library materials. 

Chief Librarian — Librarian who assumes responsibility for operation of 
the entire library, integrating its work with that of other city or 
county departments, university or college departments, or other ma- 
jor parts of the larger organization; makes final decisions on policies, 
plans and programs. 

Department Head — Professional employee who plans, organizes and 
directs the work of the staff of a major section or department of the 
library, reviews work and passes on difficult problems, and does high- 
ly skilled professional work. 

Junior Librarian (Librarian I) — Beginning professional position, re- 
quiring a college or university education, plus a degree from an 
accredited library school. This is the trainee grade, for which no 
professional experience is required. 

Principal Librarian — Professional employee who plans, organizes and 
directs the work of several sections or departments or a particular 
kind of work (e.g. children's work) in the library system; makes 
recommendations on policy organization and procedures; develops 
programs of service. 

Senior Librarian (Librarian II) — Professional employee doing varied 
and difficult professional library work under general supervision; 
may also be responsible for a subordinate function, and exercise su- 
pervisory responsibility over a small staff or act as assistant supervisor 
of a large staff. 

Nonprofessional Employee — Employee in a position the duties of 
which are of a mechanical and /or routine nature, not requiring 
professional library education.

INDEX TO NAMES OF LIBRARIES 

The Index to Names of Libraries has been prepared to guide users to 
the place of entry in the main directory of special, university, college, 
law, and public libraries not otherwise easily located. In general, each 
library in those categories which bears a name not clearly identified 
with the community in which it is located is entered here under the first 
word of the name. Place of entry in the directory is italicized. 

All municipal libraries with memorial names have been indexed. For 
quick reference, all county libraries and county law libraries are index- 
ed, unless the county seat and county have the same name. 

A few libraries with geographical names, which are actually located 
in and entered in the directory under a different place, are indexed 
( e.g., Los Angeles Harbor College, Wilmington) . 

While the index does not attempt subject approach, a few general 
finding references are used, e.g. California State Colleges, U.S. Armed 
Forces, University of California. 

Multiple entries have been made for a few libraries with proper or 
memorial names, e.g. Henry E. Huntington and Huntington, Henry E.

CARMA LEIGH 

The retirement of Carma Leigh, California State Librarian, on July 
1, 1972, ends a chapter in a long and distinguished career of service to 
California libraries and to the profession at large. 

Mrs. Leigh (then Carma Russell Zimmerman) was appointed State 
Librarian by Governor Earl Warren on September 12, 1951, and was 
subsequently reappointed by Governors Knight, Brown, and Reagan. 
Her library career had begun in 1930 at the Berkeley Public Library; 
from there she moved to the head librarianships of the Watsonville 
Public Library (1931-35), Orange County Library (1938-42), and San 
Bernardino County Library (1942-45). From 1945 to 1951, she was 
Washington State Librarian. 

Mrs. Leigh's activities have been international in scope. In 1952 she 
participated in a study of public libraries in West Germany and West 
Berlin, and in 1969 she served as Consultant to the State Library of 
Victoria, Australia. She toured Russia as a delegate to the International 
Federation of Library Associations, and her vacations have taken her to 
most parts of the world. 

In this country she was for many years a member of the Council of 
the American Library Association, and she served on many A.L.A. com- 
mittees, among them the Committee on Accreditation and the Com- 
mittee on Legislation (Chairman, 1968-69). She held the office of 
Second Vice-President of A.L.A. in 1967-68. She was President of the 
Pacific Northwest Library Association in 1950-51, and President of the 
California Library Association in 1955. She was the first President of the 
American Association of State Librarians in 1957-58. At both state and 
national levels Mrs. Leigh has served on a great variety of committees 
and commissions representing her many interests, especially library 
legislation, higher education, and education for librarianship. 

During her 21 years as State Librarian there have been notable ad- 
vances in library services for California. Countywide library service is 
now available in all counties in the state but one. There have been 
manifold enrichments of library services through funds provided by the 
California Public Library Services Act and the federal Library Services 
and Construction Act, both administered by the State Library. The 
Geographic Plan for California Public Library Systems has been devel- 
oped, as have the foundations for a statewide network of library systems 
and services for California, encompassing all types of libraries. 

California librarians have known Mrs. Leigh above all as a selfless 
worker for the improvement of library services of all kinds. She has 
earned the friendship and respect of the many legislators and other 
public officials with whom she has worked. All have responded to her 
unfailing enjoyment of life and to her remarkable personal charm.

278 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

Frank Leslie Coombs, California State Librarian, 
1898-1899 

Peter Thomas Conmy 

On April 7, 1898, Frank L. Coombs was appointed State Librarian of 
California, and served in the office until April 1, 1899, six days short of 
a year. Notwithstanding his brief period of service, it is safe to say that 
he was the most distinguished man to hold the position up to the time 
of his accession, and brought to the State Library not only rare ability, 
but combined with it the pioneer culture of California, of which he most 
definitely was a product. 

Frank Leslie Coombs, third of the five children (four sons and one 
daughter) of Nathan and Isabella Gordon Coombs, was born in Napa, 
California, on December 27, 1853. Coming into the world in the first 
year of the presidency of Franklin Pierce, the nation's fourteenth presi- 
dent, he lived until the administration of the thirty-first, Franklin D. 
Roosevelt, and therefore, on the occasion of his death on October 5, 
1934, could boast of a life span that covered more than half of the men 
who have led the nation. On his father's side his ancestry was Yankee, 
and on his mother's Scotch-Irish in part, but from his maternal grand- 
mother he had a strain of Spanish blood, therefore typifying the Cali- 
fornia social strata of the pioneer period, the amalgamation of the 
Anglo-Saxon and the Spanish. 

Nathan Coombs was a native of Massachusetts, born in Mid- 
dleborough County in 1826. In 1842, aged about sixteen, he migrated to 
Oregon and then to California with the famous Hastings party. He 
worked for a time for Stephen Smith, and then went to Gordon's place 
on Cache Creek in present Yolo County. In 1844 he became a natural- 
ized citizen of Mexico which was a prerequisite for owning land. In 1846 
he married Isabella Gordon. The ceremony was performed in Sutter's 
Fort by Captain John A. Sutter and thereafter Coombs purchased from 
Salvador Vallejo a rancho in the Napa Valley. In 1848 he laid out on part 
of his rancho the Town of Napa. He became wealthy, was active in 
politics, served in the legislature in 1855, and was made a captain of 
militia in 1863. Nathan Coombs died in Napa on December 26, 1877, 
survived by his wife, four sons, William, Nathan, Frank and Levi, and 
one daughter, Eva. 

Isabella Gordon Coombs was the daughter of William Gordon and 
Maria Lucero. William Gordon was a native of Ohio, but had migrated 
to New Mexico where he met and married Senorita Lucero. They 
moved to California in 1841 with the Rowland- Workman Party. In 1842 
the couple came north to Sonoma, and in 1843, having embraced Mexi- 
can citizenship in New Mexico, William was granted the Quesosi Ran- 
cho on Cache Creek, thus becoming Yolo County's first pioneer. He was 
known popularly as "Uncle" Billy. Maria Lucero Gordon died in 1844. 
In 1855 William remarried and in 1866 removed to Cobb Valley in Lake 
County, where he died in 1876 aged 75. 

Dr. Conmy is Librarian Emeritus, Oakland Public Library, and City Historian for the City of Oakland. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 279 

This was the ancestry of Frank Coombs, a blending of the Anglo- 
Saxon pioneer and the Spanish. Born in Napa, he received a common 
school education, but due to a dearth of secondary schools in California, 
was sent to Boston where he attended and graduated from Dorchester 
High School. Thereafter he matriculated with Columbia Law School in 
Washington, D.C., from which he received his degree on June 10, 1875. 
Returning home he was admitted to practice in March 1876. Three 
years later he was elected District Attorney of Napa County and was 
re-elected in 1882, serving until 1887. In 1886 he was elected Assembly- 
man, sitting in the 1887 session, and, subsequently re-elected, was a 
member of the 1889 and 1891 sessions, acting as Speaker in the latter. 

In 1892 he was appointed United States Minister to Japan by Presi- 
dent Harrison, serving into mid-1893 at the request of the Cleveland 
administration that he remain until replaced. Returning to Napa he 
again practiced his profession. In 1896 he was elected to the Assembly 
and presided as Speaker during the 1897 session. On April 7, 1898, he 
began his appointment as State Librarian, but resigned on April 1, 1899, 
President McKinley having named him United States Attorney for 
Northern California. This was followed by one term in the House of 
Representatives, March 4, 1901 to March 4, 1903. This appears to have 
closed his political career for the greater part of twenty years. He 
practiced law in Napa in partnership with his son, Nathan. In 1921, now 
sixty-eight years of age, he was again an Assemblyman, serving as such 
through the 1927 session. 

On his twenty-third birthday, on December 27, 1876, Frank L. 
Coombs was married to Isabelle M. Roper of Boston. A highly educated 
lady, she was a graduate of Mount Holyoke and had been a public school 
teacher. They had three children, a son and two daughters. 

State Librarian, 1898-1899 

Although Frank Coombs was neither trained for nor experienced in 
library work, he demonstrated his ability, and enhanced the office with 
much prestige. Almost immediately he evidenced a recognition of li- 
brary problems and intelligence in their solution. One of these was the 
matter of cataloging. It appears that books were listed only by author, 
which was difficult unless the reader had a background in the subject 
and was familiar with the authorities. Coombs had installed the diction- 
ary catalog. He wrote: 

The system of cataloguing originally adopted and now in vogue, 
seems to me to be inadequate to the needs and purposes of the 
library. The books are now catalogued only under the head of 
authors. This system reveals its vast treasures only to the savant, 
whose familiarity with authors and subjects enables him to turn to 
what he may desire. This is especially true in the Medical Depart- 
ment, which, valuable in itself, is yet deprived of its opportunities 
of enlightenment, save to those possessing a technical knowledge 
concerning it. When these volumes shall have largely increased in 
numbers the reasons for a different system of cataloguing will 



280 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 









become more apparent. I have, in conformity with these ideas, 
commenced a different system, known as the dictionary catalogue. 
This is being done with the force at hand, and will not necessitate 
extra expense. It relates, however, to the new books, and affords no 
relief for the great library already on hand. 1 

Another problem was that of getting overdues returned. Coombs had 
this to say: 

Under the rules, books taken from the library are required to be 
returned within two weeks from the time of taking them. I find 
receipts against persons privileged under the law to take books 
bearing dates from 1893 to the present time. By persistent effort I 
have been able to call in many of these books. 2 

The State Librarian also was concerned about a loan period which at 
that time apparently was not defined sufficiently by rule. He looked to 
responsibility and the greatest possible good for the greatest possible 
number: 

The spirit of the library has always been one of accommodation, 
which is surely commendable, yet, the experience of human affairs 
is an illustration of the fact that accommodation is apt to beget a 
disregard on the part of those benefited. I find that an enforcement 
of the rule is an innovation looked upon with disfavor, yet I believe 
that when the observance of the rule becomes the custom, it will 
prove a protection, not only to the lender but to the State officers 
themselves, who become sponsors for the number of people daily 
receiving books from the library. I am beginning a new system of 
receipts, showing the relation between the library, the State officer 
indorsing, thereby becoming responsible, and the actual recipient, 
which I hope will more effectually enforce the "limit of time" rule. 
I would suggest a change in this rule, permitting the Librarian to 
fix the maximum of time for which books may be retained. It often 
depends upon the character of a book and the matter under investi- 
gation as to how long it should remain in the hands of the 
recipient. 3 

Even in those days the matter of space was becoming acute: 

In making the order on the Controller for the money covering the 
monthly expenses of the library, I have adopted the plan of attaching 
thereto a statement showing in detail the items of expenditure. This 
provides a permanent index in the way of a public record to your acts 
and authorizations, as well as my own, and it also provides the public 
at all times with a complete knowledge of library expenditures and 
the nature of them. The public should have such an index, easily 
accessible, in order that it may be kept advised as to library matters. 
I find a lack of accommodation in the library, and it becomes 
necessary to provide room for the books fast accumulating. To make

extra shelves is to provide only for a temporary relief, and it would 
have such a result of disarrangement as to destroy the idea of system. 
The Law Department seems to be entire and of itself, separately 
catalogued and requiring the especial supervision of a deputy, but it 
is so located as to render it impossible to accommodate attorneys 
from different parts of the State who may seek its volumes after office 
hours without breaking into the rules appertaining to the conduct of 
the entire library. If the Law Library could be assigned to rooms 
separate and apart in the building, rules could be adopted applicable 
to it, and especially designed to accommodate the legal profession at 
all hours, thereby rendering it more serviceable to the people en- 
gaged in enforcing or defending their rights. This arrangement 
would provide accommodation in the present law room for another 
department of literature, filling a present necessity. A private reading 
and writing room could be arranged where the Law Library now is 
making more available, and surely more inviting, current literature, 
which in this modern age affords research into every branch and 
condition of development. 4 

Perhaps greatest of all Coombs' thoughts about the library was that 
of its apparent limited use. It was a library serving largely state officials 
and residents of Sacramento. He envisioned its becoming a statewide 
institution in fact as well as in name. Working from Coombs' suggestions 
his immortal successor, Gillis, was able to inaugurate an extension pro- 
gram: 

The great study of the library, however, lies in the question of its 
utility. It is supported by the State, yet it is simply the State's store 
house of art and literature. If such is its design, it surely fulfills its 
purpose. If, on the contrary, it is supposed to become useful alike 
to the people generally of California, it falls short of its object. 

I find in the discussion of this question that several ideas are 
advanced: one is to maintain it as a reference library; one is to make 
it a circulating library; and another is to so amend the laws as to 
bring it in contact with the several town and city libraries, and to 
inaugurate a system of exchanges with them, which would enable 
it to furnish them with books otherwise beyond their control. Even 
this plan would not contemplate the shipment of works of art, or 
rare and costly editions, yet it would enable the reader to receive 
the benefit of valuable matter now beyond the reach of his own 
local library. This is a proposition which should commend itself to 
the earnest consideration of your honorable body. 5

The State Library at the Close of the Nineties 

The California State Library in 1899, when Coombs resigned to 
become United States Attorney, was the second largest state library in 
the nation, exceeded only by that of New York. That library had 294,147 
volumes whereas California followed with 114,000. Others having 100,- 
000 were Massachusetts (104,000), Pennsylvania (101,906), Kentucky 
(100,000), and Michigan (100,000). 

Coombs as Man of Progress 

The whole career of Frank Leslie Coombs was one of progress. In this 
he represented that gallant forwardness of his pioneer blood. His record 
as Assemblyman and as Congressman reflects his thinking as well as his 
actions as State Librarian. Having voted for the creation of the Golden 
Gate Bridge District in the legislature in 1927, he was interested in its 
construction. A few weeks before his death he asked to be brought to 
the Bay Area to observe the development. This was his last trip and he 
saw the work of social progress and engineering science going on, a 
great westerner, looking west before he crossed the bar.

Santa Clara Public Library's Computerized Circulation 
System 

Donald F. Fuller 

The Santa Clara Public Library completed conversion of its Gaylord 
circulation system to an off-line computerized system using the city 
hall-based Honeywell 200 computer in June 1969. 

The decision to change from manual to computer operation was 
made in 1966 but not implemented until 1968. One of the determina- 
tions made was that, at the time of conversion, the library would use a 
family rather than individual registration plan with the control being 
in a group of digits assigned by the computer. All patrons who were 
registered were reregistered and, together with all new patrons, had 
the necessary information entered on magnetic tape through NCR 
encoders by library staff. 

Prior to conversion the existing shelf list was typed for optical scan- 
ning, fed into the computer, and a master shelf list on magnetic tape 
was created. At the same time printouts of this shelf list in author, title, 
and shelf list sequence were produced, as well as book cards. Once the 
cards were received at the library the staff matched them with books 
so that each book received a new machine readable book card. 

At the present time, as materials are cataloged the shelf list informa- 
tion is entered on magnetic tape by a library staff member through an 
NCR encoder. Once a week this information is fed into the computer 
and merged with the master shelf list tape. Book cards and pocket labels 
are produced by the computer, returned to the library, and matched 
with the books which are then ready for circulation. 

As patrons complete the registration form the information thereon is 
entered on magnetic tape via the NCR encoder. Once a week this 
information is forwarded to the computer which assigns patron num- 
bers, merges the information in the master patron tape, and produces 
labels. These labels are returned to the library and affixed to a plastic 
card which is then punched by a library page and issued to the patrons. 
There is provision for issue of temporary cards so that patrons may take 
books immediately. When permanent cards are ready, the temporary 
card is flagged so that the patron must use his permanent card. The 
system "purges" the file annually and removes families who have not 
charged out material or renewed a card during the previous year. 

All overdue notices and bills are routinely prepared by the computer. 
These notices list all delinquencies for all memers of a family and are 
automatically addressed to the person listed as "head of the house." 
Notices are single sheets which are folded, stapled, and put through the 
postage meter. 

After testing different types of equipment the library and data proc- 
essing staffs elected to use the Colorado Instrument Company C-Deks 
as collection devices. In the Central Library these machines are con-

284 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

nected to a multiplexer which records the data on magnetic tape, while 
the branch library and bookmobile collect the data on paper tape. All 
tapes are fed into the computer after the close of the library day and 
merged with the master circulation tape. From this tape we get the 
reports listed below. 

Daily: 

Edit list — this reports the errors made by the C-Deks, gives the 
percentage of total errors and listing by error so that we can ascertain 
which machine is making what error. 

Exception report — this lists errors made by humans, i.e. wrong 
information keyed in, etc. 

Circulation traffic — a report on fiction and non-fiction, adult and 
juvenile, phonograph records, etc. by location, including bookmobile 
stop, and by hour. Cumulated for day. Charted hourly for traffic. 

Reserve list — those books which are on reserve. 

Overdue notices — all overdue materials listed by family number so 
that all overdue material in one family is printed on the same notice. 
Head of household is printed with address on lower portion of form 
which is folded, stapled, and put through the postage meter for mail- 
ing. 

Three Times a Week: 

Outstanding overdue list — all outstanding books which are over- 
due. Received on three days in place of full outstanding list (see 
below) . 

Twice a Week: 

Outstanding list — all books presently charged out of the library and 
not yet returned. List is arranged by book number. 

Full overdue printout — a list of all overdue materials and fines 
outstanding (a delinquency report). Cumulated and arranged by 
patron number. Also lost card reports. 

Once a Week: 

Book cards. 

Book pocket labels. 

Book edit list — any errors which are reported when the new shelf 
list information is merged with the master shelf list, e.g. duplicate 
numbers, etc., or information which the program is not prepared to 
accept. 

Lost and paid list — a cumulative list of all outstanding books lost 
and paid, in accession number order. 

Patron edit list — any errors which appear when the new patron 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 285 

information is merged with the master patron list or information 
which is missing, e.g. driver's license number. 

Patron labels — to be affixed to plastic cards which are punched 
with patron number. 

Patron supplement, alphabetical — a cumulated list of patrons who 
have been added to the registration file since the last major printout. 

Once a Month: 

Patron supplement, numerical — same as alphabetical patron sup- 
plement, but in number order. 

Shelf list supplement — a cumulated list of materials added to the 
shelf list since the last major printout. We receive three of these — one 
in Dewey number order, one in title sequence, and one in author 
sequence. 

Circulation traffic — cumulated reports of daily circulation traffic 
including bookmobile stops. 

Patron traffic — cumulated report on numbers and status of patrons 
added. 

Twice a Year: 

Full patron printouts — cumulated list of all patrons who have valid 
library cards. In alphabetical order and another in numerical order. 

Full shelf list printouts — cumulated shelf list records, printouts in 
Dewey order, title sequence, and author sequence. 

Once a Year. 

The patron masterfile is examined and those patrons who have not 
used the library during the preceding 12 months are "purged" from 
the file. 

The method of operation is quite simple. The patron presents his 
book and card to a staff member. The clerk places the book card and 
patron card in designated slots, a key is depressed; probes read the 
punched data and record it on magnetic tape through an electrical 
impulse. The patron card is returned to the patron; the book card is 
replaced in the book pocket with a date due slip. The transaction is 
completed in a total elapsed time of two seconds or less. 

There are various settings on the C-Deks so that different loan peri- 
ods, renewals, fines paid, etc. may be recorded in one operation. All 
books returned to the library must have the book card put through the 
C-Deks, or the book number dialed in, which then clears the charge. 
If the book is overdue and the fine not paid this information is recorded 
automatically and appears in a delinquent printout which also includes 
a record of all overdue, lost, or reported-missing materials listed by 
patron number, as well as patron cards reported lost. It is not necessary 
to have the patron card at the time of return except to clear fines. 



286 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

If a book card is missing the book may be circulated by dialing in the 
book number. This action alerts the computer to produce a replace- 
ment book card. Such new cards are generated only at the time of a 
charge. 

Although we have had no power failures since we have been on the 
system, a back-up routine allows for keypunching of the necessary infor- 
mation. At the present time books, phonorecords, and cataloged pam- 
phlets circulate through the system. Periodicals will be automated in 
the next phase. Films and framed pictures will be circulated manually 
until such time as volume and loan period make it worth entering them 
into the system.

Tax Structure For California Libraries 

J. P. McBrien 

Introduction 

It has been some time since I last had the opportunity to talk to a large 
number of library representatives and I appreciate the invitation ex- 
tended to me to be present here today. Of course I know that library 
staff are a hard-working group and cannot fully set aside Sunday for rest 
and worship as some persons do, and I guess perhaps most librarians do 
not glue themselves on Sunday to television sets like many people to 
watch professional football games and cheer on their favorite team — 
under the stimulus of malt, grain, or grape beverages. In my own case, 
if I were not here, I would undoubtedly be back at the office, answering 
rankling letters from irate taxpayers carefully explaining to them the 
reasons for the amount of their tax bills — without conforming to the 
tone of their letters and telling them to move to a lower tax rate area 
and perhaps a warmer locale. All in all, this is probably a good day for 
everyone to meet. 

I should tell you at the start that it is undoubtedly true that I am no 
expert on the subjects which are of interest to you. Several years back 
some notes which I used in participating in a University of California 
Symposium for librarians were edited and published in the Library 
Quarterly. Subsequently I received a note from the executive director 
of a consulting firm by which I had been employed, in which he said 
in part about the article, "I find its conclusions agreeable, and it reas- 
sures me of another point. Any country in which a library article by a 
railroad engineer from M.I.T. can be published by the University of 
Chicago Press cannot be all bad yet." Of course, with all our problems, 
it still isn't all bad yet — and never will be. 

Present Local Library Revenue Structure 

Revenue sources for the operation of county library systems vary 
somewhat from county to county, but basically there is a uniformity 
between them in terms of substantial dependence upon property tax 
revenues. 

The situation in Contra Costa County may well be illustrative of the 
total picture. In the fiscal year 1960-1961 property taxes comprised 92.4 
per cent of the total county library revenue budget, and a decade later, 
in the fiscal year 1971-1972, property taxes comprised 87.4 per cent of 
the county library revenue budget. The county library budget was 
increased by 213 per cent from the fiscal year 1960-1961 through the 
fiscal year 1971-1972. The property tax component of the county library 
revenue budget has increased by 196 per cent from the fiscal year 
1960-1961 through the fiscal year 1971-1972. 

Mr. McBrien is County Administrator, Contra Costa County, California. His paper was presented to 
the County Librarians of California on December 12, 1971, during the 73rd Annual Conference 
of the California Library Association in San Francisco.

From the figures which I have cited, it is obvious little or no progress 
has been made in the last ten years in diminishing the dependence 
upon property tax revenues for the support of our county library sys- 
tem, and I believe this is generally true with respect to all local library 
systems in California. This situation prevails despite the passage of 
federal and state legislation aimed at providing funds from other than 
property tax sources for aiding public libraries. 

In Contra Costa County, a favorable situation has prevailed during 
the last decade in connection with the provision of new physical plant 
inclusive of a central library structure and 15 new branch libraries (12 
completed and 3 underway) . Substantial dependence has been placed 
upon lease-option financing using county employee retirement funds; 
this arrangement has worked out very satisfactorily both in terms of 
making funds available for new library construction and providing 
sound investments of retirement funds. Responsibility for the payment 
of the cost of construction of branch libraries has been placed upon 
specific communities, incorporated and unincorporated, through the 
use of a county service area law. The communities directly benefiting 
from the new libraries have been taxed at a modest level (over a period 
of years — usually six or seven years) to obtain funds to repay (principal 
and interest) the county employees retirement fund for the monies 
provided under the lease-option arrangement. It is worthy of note that 
the lease-option and county service area procedures have not been 
criticized and the communities involved have been very well satisfied 
with the new facilities. New branch libraries are taken over for opera- 
tion by our county library organization as a part of its over-all library 
service. 

In the present California local government financial structure, local 
library systems do not command substantial appropriations in relation 
to other agencies. In Contra Costa County, for example, the total tax 
levies for all local government agencies for the fiscal year 1971-1972 is 
$234,000,000; this levy would be $247,000,000 except that the State of 
California provides $13,000,000 to compensate for revenue losses result- 
ing from the new statutory provisions on homeowner and inventory 
exemptions. The total appropriations of all local government agencies 
in Contra Costa County for the fiscal year 1971-1972 are in the approxi- 
mate amount of $450,000,000 (inclusive of the property tax levies cited) . 
The 1971-1972 appropriation for our county library system is roughly 
$3,000,000. This relatively small library share results from the facts that: 
(1) the county share of property tax revenues is limited to 23 per cent, 
as compared to 54 per cent for schools, 15 per cent for special districts, 
and 8 per cent for cities, and (2) the county must meet priority match- 
ing money demands for public assistance and for medical care of indi- 
gents. 

Present System Library Revenue Structure 

The 21 library systems which have been organized in California have 
made some progress. The East Bay Cooperative Library System, in 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 289 

which Contra Costa County participates (along with Alameda County 
and the Cities of Richmond and Alameda) , for example, has accom- 
plishments in terms of book acquisitions, cataloging, communications, 
and delivery service. These accomplishments, however, have been re- 
stricted in scope within each of the functional areas to which attention 
has been given — because of extremely limited financing. 

Our Contra Costa County library appropriation for total library serv- 
ice for the fiscal year 1971-1972 amounts to $6,079 per capita. The 
allocation of funds made to the East Bay Cooperative Library System 
(fiscal year 1970-1971) under the state Public Library Services Act 
amounts to $0,024 per capita. This comparison is not made for the 
purpose of implying that state funds should be made available for sys- 
tems libraries in amounts comparable to local support of local libraries; 
it is cited, however, to reflect the fact that state funds have not been 
appropriated in the proportion (10 per cent, adjusted in specific cases 
by equalization factors) authorized under the state Public Library Serv- 
ices Act. In this situation, financial solvency for even modest system 
library programs is contingent upon intermittent and restricted scope 
federal grants and local property tax revenue support. 

The proposed geographic plan for California public libraries, with 12 
regional groupings and 4 research libraries, and some 40 area libraries, 
will be a long time coming unless stronger financial support is provided 
than has been available for existing system libraries. 

Impact Of Library System Innovations 

In California significant improvements have been made in library 
management, and many innovations have been introduced to improve 
service and diminish the unit cost of service. 

In Contra Costa County, for example, improvements have included 
area organizational arrangements, new physical plant, better communi- 
cations, revised cataloging methods, and faster book delivery service; 
data processing methods are being studied to ascertain the feasibility 
and benefits of particular applications. 

Improvements in library management have undoubtedly diminished 
the revenue requirements which would have been necessary in the 
absence of such desirable attainments. The fact is, however, that reve- 
nue needs are still on a sharp upward trend as the result of growing 
service demands and rising costs. Continued emphasis on improved 
organizational arrangements and better procedures is essential but ad- 
ditional revenues will still be required. Library patrons in growing 
numbers seek more and more library benefits and it is not possible to 
manage or innovate so as to meet demands without basic resources — 
books and the means to get them to the patron — and sometimes the 
means to get them back.

Overall Tax Structure Proposals 

In the last decade, and particularly during the last five or six years, 
concerted attention has been given to tax structure changes by the 
California State Legislature. Much of the impetus behind the proposed 
revisions is the result of widespread protests against the rising level of 
property taxes. In connection with the demands to provide relief from 
the onerous property tax burden, some consideration has been given to 
revenue resource areas in which current taxes are regarded as being set 
at a level which is too low and, therefore, in terms of equity, adjust- 
ments have been suggested. 

The proposals to diminish the amount of revenue taken from the 
property tax source have generally been termed "tax relief and "tax 
reform." Actually such nomenclature is probably not appropriate be- 
cause what is intended is a tax shift from the property tax revenue 
source to other high revenue producing tax bases, primarily the state 
income tax and the state sales tax. Tax relief, in a true overall concept, 
means tax reduction — and the only way to accomplish that objective is 
to reduce expenditures; in turn, reduced expenditures in substantial 
proportions means program elimination and /or less intensive service. 
There has been no insistent and widespread public demand for less 
service (except from those who find expanding public assistance and 
related programs unpalatable) and no significant legislative actions 
aimed in that direction. 

There is an absolute need, in my opinion, to reduce the property tax 
burden. I say this even though there are strong reasons for the use of 
the property tax — specifically it bears a relationship to ability to pay, it 
tends to promote proper use and curb speculation of land, it is a produc- 
tive source of revenue, and it provides a grip from the local level on the 
control of programs financed in part with local, state, and federal funds. 
The fact is, however, that the property tax has undesirable regressive 
features — particularly in the case of homeowners and especially in the 
case of residents with fixed incomes who own or rent their homes. 

The amount by which property taxes should be reduced is a debata- 
ble subject. Some tax change advocates believe there should be no 
property taxes; others, who are fully informed on revenue needs, be- 
lieve the tax rate level should be set at a safe margin below the height 
of property confiscation hazards. I think there must be a massive shift 
away from dependence upon property taxes — say to the extent of 50 per 
cent. 

In shifting away to a situation with substantially less reliance upon 
property taxes, it should be noted that no really comfortable tax climate 
will subsequently prevail. The sales tax increase alternative has distinct 
regressive features although the collection impact is spread in terms of 
time and payment amounts. The income tax increase alternative will 
not be regarded fondly, because to obtain substantial increased reve- 
nues it is necessary to tap the salary and wage resources of the large 
middle income group. No matter in which direction we look, taxes will 
not be popular. The old adage that "the only fair taxes are those the 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 291 

other fellow pays" is as true today as it was when first asserted many 
years ago. 

In the total picture the improvement of the tax structure from the 
state and local viewpoints would be less difficult to accomplish if the 
revenue sharing of federal income could become a reality. The pros- 
pects from that direction are not bright for many reasons; some are the 
required level of defense spending, the desire of federal authorities to 
aid the taxpayers directly by reducing federal income taxes, and the 
resistance to changing federal policies on control of subventions 
through rigid regulations (as contrasted to the flexibility of use of block 
grants under revenue sharing arrangements) . It seems to me that reve- 
nue sharing, if it comes, may be some time ahead of us. 

It is my belief that property tax levies should be substantially cut by 
legislative action on the provision of additional subvented revenues in 
large amounts. In connection with such an overall tax structure change 
it is my opinion that: 

1. Such tax loopholes as may exist should be closed and tax revenue 
producing components of the tax structure which may be inequita- 
bly taxed at a low level should be subject to fair upward tax adjust- 
ments. 

2. Both the state income tax and the state sales tax should be adjusted 
upward to raise additional revenues for local governments includ- 
ing school districts. 

3. Special statutory provisions should be made to more significantly 
aid homeowners and residents with fixed incomes. 

4. No ceilings on property tax rate levels should be established other 
than those which now exist; the existing tax rate ceiling situation 
should be studied to determine what course of action with respect 
to them is desirable and in the best interest of the taxpayers. 

5. No statewide school property tax levy should be introduced to 
meet the requirements imposed as the result of court action 
{Serrano v. Priest) . For years the state share of financing schools 
has been following a downward percentage trend with a concomi- 
tant sharp upward swing on the property tax component of re- 
quired funds for schools. 

6. A moratorium should be placed on legislation establishing new 
organizations and programs (local and regional) requiring local 
level funding from property tax revenues. 

7. Attention should be given to the elimination of state-local govern- 
ment shared financing of small programs, requiring both state and 
local financial and post-audit controls and reporting, and in lieu 
thereof emphasis should be placed upon the bases of shared financ- 
ing of major programs and upon unrestricted state subventions to 
local governments. 

In general, I believe we need to utilize the broad and diverse tax base 
of the state to produce the revenues required for many programs con- 



292 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

ducted at the local level and that the existing dependence upon local 
property tax revenues should be greatly lessened — but still retained as 
one component of a reliable and equitable means of local government 
financial support. 

Special Constitutional Tax Structure Proposals 

The increasing concern of property taxpayers about the high level of 
property taxation coupled with the failure of the California State Legis- 
lative and Executive branches to produce a program for substantial 
property tax relief has engendered two initiative measures to obtain 
such relief by amendment to the California State Constitution. These 
measures are known as the Watson Petition, authored by the Los Ange- 
les County Assessor, and the Jarvis Petition, authored by the Chairman 
of the United Organizations of Taxpayers (a Los Angeles-based group) . 

The Watson and Jarvis proposals are similar in concept in that rela- 
tively low tax rate ceilings are set to limit the capacity of local govern- 
ments to raise revenues by property taxation. There are also basic 
differences in the two proposals; for example, the Watson proposal 
provides specifically for some substitute state revenues while the Jarvis 
amendment does not — except that the State Legislature is given the 
problem of raising revenues to offset property tax revenue losses. 

The effect of either of the initiative constitutional amendments, if 
approved by the voters, would vary from county to county. In Contra 
Costa County the Watson proposal would apparently reduce current 
county government property taxes and still permit continuance of the 
current level and scope of service, but presumably the effect upon 
essential local special district functions (including branch library con- 
struction using the county service area arrangement) would be crip- 
pling. In other counties the reverse situation, as regards county 
government and special district services, might develop. 

I believe the authors of both the two initiative proposals are sincere 
in their property tax reduction objectives but I do not agree that either 
proposal should be endorsed. In the first place property tax limitations 
should not be made constitutional provisions. The State Constitution 
should be a basic document setting forth the rights of the people and 
establishing the plan of government which they wish to have. The State 
Constitution should not be used as a device for insuring the rigidity of 
measures which may be palatable in terms of current circumstances but 
which in reality should be statutory provisions so that the elected repre- 
sentative of the people, legislators and Governor, may have reasonably 
flexible means of coping with changing times and needs. In the second 
place tax rate limitations have never been an effective means of control- 
ling property tax levies. By one means or another, all legal, the tax rate 
limitations are exceeded to meet the demands of the times. An example 
is the $1.00 tax rate limitation imposed upon general law cities; this 
limitation has been avoided by voted increases, by using assessment 
multipliers (now legally applied to the tax rate for a specific past year) 
and special exceptions for particular functions now permitted by stat- 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 293 

lite. The maximum general law city tax rate in Contra Costa County is 
now $3,002, one indication of the ineffectiveness of the $1.00 tax rate 
restriction. 

Future Library Tax Rate Structure 

I know that you have a general interest in overall tax rate structures 
because library operation and new construction is a directly related 
matter. I know also that your specific interest is in the status of library 
financing within the overall tax rate structure. 

In speaking of future library financing attention must be given to 
projected organizational arrangements. The proposed geographic plan 
for California public libraries, with 12 regional groups and 4 research 
libraries, and some 40 area libraries, seems to me to be a desirable 
arrangement. In my opinion the geographic organization, excluding 
area libraries, should be financed with allocations of state funds, supple- 
mented with such federal funds as may be made available and further 
supplemented by local funds when local library units wish to introduce 
special desirable programs not fiscally covered by the uniform state- 
wide plan. In this connection the full funding allowable under the state 
Public Library Services Act should be made available and probably 
extra monies should be allocated so that headquarters for regional coor- 
dinating personnel and equipment may be developed. 

In speaking of future library financing at the local level, organization- 
al arrangements should also be considered. In my opinion efforts should 
be directed toward establishing the county library systems as the basic 
local library unit with selected components of the county systems desig- 
nated as area libraries. It may well be that some libraries, particularly 
in larger cities, need not be included in county library systems, may in 
some instances serve well as area libraries, and may appropriately work 
directly into the current system library arrangements and later into the 
proposed geographic plan for libraries. Generally, however, it is my 
opinion that local library systems will be too fractured to be fully effec- 
tive in terms of service, economics, and capacity to compete for finan- 
cial support if there are a very large number of them operating under 
the control of separate political jurisdictions. 

I would like to point out also from an organizational standpoint that 
the local library systems, community and area libraries, are the primary 
points from which library patrons receive service and are also the solid 
base for any type of area- wide library arrangements. Systems and /or 
geographic organizations should be service oriented for the benefit of 
the local library units with emphasis upon their function as information 
centers and rapid delivery service. 

Local library financing as I have indicated previously is largely de- 
pendent upon the property tax revenue source. Any substantial move 
away from this dependency should be helpful in terms of the library 
financial problem. This is true whether state dedicated non-property 
tax revenues are provided for local libraries or whether the jurisdictions 



294 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

which operate local libraries are provided with property tax relief. It 
should be noted that: 

1. Dedicated funds involve controls and records to insure stipulated 
uses of the monies provided and are often obnoxious. 

2. Without dedicated funds, libraries will still be required to compete 
for financial support with other components of the jurisdictions 
under which they operate after such jurisdictions are provided 
with property tax relief; the competition should not be as keen, 
however, as under current financial circumstances. 

In my opinion the second of the alternatives which I have cited is the 
preferable one. Under that arrangement local library systems may still 
have fiscal problems but the solutions may be sought and found at the 
local level, property taxes levied locally will still be a component of 
financial support and local control may be held through such financial 
participation, and local library systems still can and should remain alert 
and cooperative with respect to area-wide organizational arrangements 
aimed at the mobilization and better utilization of library resources. 
I would urge you therefore to support overall property tax relief for 
local government, to remain within the financial framework of the 
jurisdictions under which you operate rather than seek dedicated funds, 
and to be cautious about proposals which would fix financial restraints 
with constitutional rigidity. Further, I would urge you to be aggressive 
and challenge for the benefit of your patrons those who would allow you 
less than a fair share of available revenues. If you follow this course I 
think that you will be able to provide for all the opportunity to review 
the creations of the past, to keep abreast of the events of the present, 
and to visualize the probabilities of the future. 

Before I conclude I would like to make one more comment. Our 
County Librarian in Contra Costa County is retiring early in 1972. She 
is well known to many of you because she has participated in your 
deliberations and studies for many years. She will leave for us a remark- 
able record and I will state without reservation that I know of no one 
who has contributed more to real county progress and the public weal 
than Mrs. Bertha D. Helium.

Information Sources for Career Exploration: the Second 
Symposium 

Alfred J. Maupin 

"Outreach" in the library profession has come to imply service to 
ethnic minorities, educationally disadvantaged whites, and perhaps the 
physically and /or mentally handicapped. One does not associate the 
electronics engineer, physicist, or Ph.D. scientist with Outreach." 

Changes in national priorities in the last three or four years have had 
a particulary adverse effect on the California economy. Funds formerly 
allocated to research and manufacturing in the aerospace and allied 
fields have been diverted or simply cut out. 

Most aerospace workers have been through previous cutbacks and 
layoffs; it soon became apparent, however, that this sector of the econ- 
omy might not regain its previous position in the foreseeable future. To 
the unemployed engineer or scientist, there was much misinformation, 
or no information, about job opportunities in other fields; there were 
few to guide him if he wished to change careers. 

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics ( AIAA) had 
for some time presented workshops in its Southern California Chapter, 
when, in conjunction with the California State Library's Service to 
Business and Industry, a full-scale symposium on "Information Sources 
for Career Exploration" was presented at the University of Southern 
California. Held in October, 1970, it was attended by approximately 350, 
about half of whom were then unemployed, and another 25 percent 
expected to be discharged in the near future. The proceedings were 
printed in News Notes of California Libraries, Winter Supplement, 
1971. 

The success of this seminar, the continually deteriorating economic 
situation, and growing uneasiness among aerospace professionals 
prompted Mr. Ed Grazda, representing the Institute of Electrical and 
Electronics Engineers, to request the California State Library to pre- 
sent a second symposium in the Ventura-Santa Barbara area. 

In response to Mr. Grazda's request, a planning committee was 
formed: Mrs. Phyllis I. Dalton, Assistant State Librarian; Mr. Grazda and 
Mrs. Anne Slatten of the Ventura County Auxiliary of IEEE; Mrs. 
Catherine Chadwick, Ventura County Librarian; Mrs. Nadine Green- 
up, Black Gold Information Center; Mrs. Marge Lipney and Mrs. Elaine 
Crough of the Ventura County Library Staff. Coordination was pro- 
vided by Alfred Maupin, Consultant, California State Library. 

Publicity in the local press and spot radio announcements were han- 
dled by the Community Relations office of Moorpark College and the 
Ventura County Library. Mrs. Slatten took care of reservations and 
registration. 

Registrants were invited to arrive early and stay late to examine 
materials exhibited, and to talk with librarian hostesses who explained 

Mr. Maupin is a Library Consultant at the California State Library. He was a member of the Planning 
Committee for the first Career Symposium, and participated in the panels in both symposiums. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 297 

the use of these resources. The hostesses were volunteers from the 
Ventura and Santa Barbara Public Libraries and special libraries in the 
area. 

The Symposium was held on Thursday, April 29, 1971, in the Forum 
of Moorpark College. Mrs. Larry Lloyd, Director of the College-Com- 
munity Relations Office, provided the physical arrangements. 

The program started at 7:30. Approximately 100 people attended. 
Mrs. Dalton, chairman for the evening, introduced the following speak- 
ers: Donald Page, Chief, Job Training Section, California Department 
of Human Resources Development; Frank Stockbridge, Chief Econo- 
mist, Security Pacific National Bank, Los Angeles; and Burt Bishow, 
Manager, Ernst and Ernst, Los Angeles, California. Mrs. Dalton then 
introduced the panel moderator, Mr. Lew Byrd, Vice President, 
BRADCO, Inc., who in turn introduced the panel: Mr. Grazda; Miss 
Margaret Anderson, head Librarian, North American Science Center, 
Thousand Oaks; Mr. John Kallenberg, Assistant City Librarian, Santa 
Barbara; and Mr. Maupin. Mr. Grazda assumed the role of an inquiring 
engineer /scientist seeking career information in a library. The panel in 
an informal conversational manner explained various sources of infor- 
mation, and how, through networks, information not locally available 
could be rapidly obtained. Following this presentation Mr. Byrd direct- 
ed questions from the audience to appropriate speakers or panel mem- 
bers. 

Hostesses and program participants remained after the program to 
continue examination of displays. 

Dr. William Lawson, Assistant Dean of Instruction, Moorpark Col- 
lege, encouraged us in our preparation of this program. Mrs. Mary Jane 
Schmelzle, California State Library Service to Industry, assisted the 
panel in preparing its presentation; the staff of the Ventura County 
Library smoothed our path in countless ways. This Symposium is an 
outstanding example of what can be accomplished by the coordinated 
efforts of public, special and academic libraries. Real community spirit, 
expertise in providing information (surely the library's principal raison 
d'etre) , and the ability to deliver information to those in need (in this 
case, aerospace professionals) are the foundations of total library serv- 
ice.

CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY'S ANNUAL PROGRAM 
LIBRARY SERVICES AND CONSTRUCTION ACT 

California's Annual Program for fiscal year 1972 will consist of 
projects and project descriptions which will be "action steps" in the 
implementation of programs that will lead to fulfillment of (1) general 
objectives of total statewide library development in California; and (2) 
objectives specific to the use of funds from the Library Services and 
Construction Act. 

Priorities to be emphasized will be: (1) those of extending public 
library services to geographical areas and groups of persons without 
such services; improving such services in such areas and for such groups 
as may have inadequate public library services; and establishing, ex- 
panding and operating programs and projects to provide State institu- 
tional library services, library services to the physically handicapped, 
library services for the economically disadvantaged in urban and rural 
areas, strengthening metropolitan public libraries which serve as na- 
tional or regional resource centers, and strengthening the California 
State Library; (2) those of public library construction projects which 
will result in a usable public library building; and (3) those of interli- 
brary cooperation. 

/. Title I. 

Budget figures appearing in this Annual Program are Federal funds 
unless otherwise noted: 

Federal Source: $3,684,797 

State Source: $3,926,761 

Local Source: $110,178,869 

A. The general objectives of total statewide library development in 
California relating to the extension of public library services will be to 
promote the further extension of public library services to areas which 
are without such services or with inadequate services; to make library 
services more accessible to persons who, by reason of distance, resi- 
dence or physical handicap, or other disadvantage, are unable to re- 
ceive the benefits of public library services regularly made available to 
the public; to strengthen metropolitan public libraries which serve as 
national or regional resource centers; and to improve and strengthen 
the California State Library. 

B. Specific activities to be carried out by California in the fiscal year 
1972 with its allotment of funds for library services under Title I will be 
the following activities: 

(1) Projects to strengthen public library reference networks de- 
signed to serve the total population of California. 

(a) Project to strengthen public library systems. Grants will be 
continued to library systems established under the Public Library 
Services Act so that area libraries, acting as resource centers, may 
provide the more extensive reference and bibliographic services

//. Title II. (Federal funds: $508,399; Local funds: $1,016,798) 

A. The general objectives under Title II will be to construct public 
library facilities to serve areas which are without library facilities neces- 
sary to develop library services. 

B. Specific objectives will be to determine those public library con- 
struction projects which will result in usable public library buildings 
pursuant to California's Basic State Plan. 

(1) Criteria, priorities and terms and conditions 

(a) Criteria used in determining which areas have inadequate 
facilities are: 

(1) Does the building or buildings housing the library services 
for the area provide easy access and use by physically hand- 
icapped persons? 

(2) Does the building or buildings housing the library services 
for the area provide adequate physical facilities as described in 
the California Library Association's Public Library Service 
Standards for California, "Standards of Buildings and Equip- 
ment," x The American Library Association's Minimum Stand- 
ards for Public Library Systems, 1966, "Physical Facilities." 2 
Service is considered inadequate if it fails to meet any one set 
of standards. 

(b) Criteria to be applied by the California State Library agency 
in evaluating applications for construction grants are as follows: 

( 1 ) The building must provide facilities for the enrichment of 
service in an area through coordination of the resources and /or 
services of (a) two or more libraries, or (b) of a library system 
as established under the Public Library Services Act. 

(2) Each library in the system, in order to qualify for a con- 
struction grant, shall provide current local support for operating 
expenditures, excluding capital outlay, expenditures for library 
service equal to a tax rate of fifteen cents ($0.15) on each one 
hundred dollars ($100) of the assessed valuation of the area 
served, or two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) annually per capita 
in the area served, whichever is less. LSCA funds will not replace 
local funds. 

(3) The library must have a long-range program for develop- 
ment, including data on the present status of the library, popula- 
tion projections for twenty years ahead, and specific plans for the 
next ten years. 

(4) A California-registered architect shall be employed for the 
project. 

1 Public Library Service Standards for California, adopted by the membership of the California Li- 

brary Association on November 14, 1953, amended by action of the Board of Directors at their 
meeting held on November 1, 1958, reprinted from News Notes of California Libraries, Spring, 
1963, Vol. 58, No. 2 Sacramento: California State Library, p. 299.

pp. 56-64. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 2, SPRING, 1972 307 

(5) A professional librarian shall function as consultant to the 
architect throughout the planning and construction of the build- 
ing. This librarian may be a consultant from outside the library 
system or he may be the head of the library or one of the head 
librarians in the library system for which the building is being 
constructed. 

(6) There must be a written program prepared by the librar- 
ian prior to the designing of the building by the architect. 

(7) The building program must be in keeping with the li- 
brary's service program: that is, the building must provide physi- 
cal facilities for the services which the library will offer, but 
should not include extravagant facilities; on the other hand it 
must provide facilities adequate for the implementation of the 
library's service programs. 

(8) The building must conform to ALA standards or California 
library standards for buildings, or to local library standards in 
cases where local standards are based on ALA or California Li- 
brary Association standards but are more specific. 

(9) The square footage cost must be in keeping with the stand- 
ard cost in the area for similar buildings. 

(10) There shall be competitive bidding for all prime con- 
tracts for construction and initial fixed equipment, and the con- 
tract shall be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. 

(11) The project must appear feasible in that local support will 
be sufficient to maintain the program for which the building is 
constructed. 

(12) The project must fit into the total Master Plan for the 
Development of Public Library Service in the State of California, 
as contributing to a local or regional system. 

(13) The building must be accessible to and usable by physi- 
cally handicapped persons. 

(c) Priorities recognized in determining projects selected will 
be as follows: 

(1) Priority will be given to buildings devoted exclusively to 
library services. 

(2) Priority will be given to types of libraries in the following 
order: 

First priority: Two or more formerly independent libraries 
which consolidate under a single administration subsequent to 
the approval of the Plan by the Commissioner of Education. 

Second priority: A headquarters building for an existing sys- 
tem, or a headquarters building for a community library which 
is part of a system established under the Public Library Services 
Act. 

Third priority: Branch buildings for existing systems estab- 
lished under the Public Library Services Act. A public agency 
applying for a grant for branch buildings must have adopted a 
program of library service with standards for branch buildings 



308 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

stating the geographical area served by a branch, the population 

served, and the relationship of the branches to central library 

services. 

Priority will be given to new construction over purchasing 

and /or remodeling of an existing building. 

(d) Terms and conditions with respect to construction. The 
California State Library agency shall assure that the following 
terms and conditions will be complied with on all construction 
projects assisted under Title II of the Act:

Library Outreach in California 

Phyllis I. Dal ton 

Interest creates interest in the developing of library programs that 
reach out to the people. California librarians' interest in people and 
their library needs has led to the development of many and varied 
programs that reach out to people. 

The outreach activities described in this issue of News Notes of Cali- 
fornia Libraries represent only a selection from among the many such 
activities going on all over California. Each of these programs is most 
important in its own setting. Future issues of News Notes will describe 
additional activities that reach out to people as developed in their 
settings. 

Many of the programs described are entirely local endeavors without 
any additional funding and utilizing only regular staff or volunteers. 
Some have been aided, at least in the beginning, with state and /or 
federal funding. 

Probably the greatest single need in library service outreach pro- 
grams is for a better informed and involved public. Sound policies will 
then be supported and the tools necessary to provide the library service 
will be available. These programs are costly — thus action is costly. But 
the cost of inaction is, of course, even greater. These programs de- 
scribed here are confronting the critical social problems — not avoiding 
them. 

Young people are playing a large part in these programs; they are 
committed to the idea of going where the need is rather than falling 
back on passive attitudes. The activities also illustrate the importance 
of having community involvement from the beginning so that the com- 
munity accepts the library service. They demonstrate that the commu- 
nity needs to play an active part in deciding the library functions and 
services. 

Outreach programs generally are illustrating the idea "if it works, use 
it" — with or without traditional library procedures. Staff members re- 
cruited from the community are most effective in these non-traditional 
programs. They know how to reach into the community to ensure 
library service to everyone. 

Additional funds will always help but commitment, ingenuity, and 
creativity are the prime ingredients to an effective outreach program. 
Materials used in these projects can be used many times over. Books, 
records, filmstrips, films, puzzles and pictures can be used in many 
different projects. Creative dramatic programs are effective and story- 
telling most worthwhile when the storyteller uses a variety of materials. 
As a result, rewards are continuous for staff members. 

The aim of reaching out is to provide library service to those who do 
not use the library. Another step in the process is to bring all to the 
library so ways to make the library a more interesting place also have 
a part in outreach programs. 

Phyllis I. Dalton is Assistant State Librarian, California State Library.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



In all programs it is necessary to make the most of what you have; you 
can make your services known; you can take them to the people; and 
your reward will be in the use the people make of the services. Young 
people become "turned off" toward reading and library use as they 
grow up. This trend is the opposite of the purpose of libraries and 
education. These programs, others underway, and those of the future 
will change this trend through the involvement of all people in the 
giving and receiving of library service.

The Librarian and the Jailer 

Mary R. Stewart 

When Alameda County Library began its bookmobile stops at the 
Santa Rita Rehabilitation Center, no one realized what a profound 
effect the service would have on the attitudes of the library staff and 
the goals of our library system. We enthusiastically accepted the man- 
date from our County Grand Jury to provide library service to the 600 
sentenced men living in the compound, yet the proposed program was 
thought of as a one-sided experience. However, looking back over the 
past three and one-half years of service to Santa Rita, it is no overstate- 
ment to say that the program has deeply affected all the library staff 
members who have been involved with it. For many of us, Santa Rita 
has meant library service in its most personal and meaningful form. 

We began by considering the inmates as patrons at a regular bookmo- 
bile stop, behind a barbed fence, to be sure, but coming to us from 8:00 
jto 10:30 on Saturday mornings twice a month. We immediately discov- 
jered that our collection of 3,000 volumes, of which half are children's 
jbooks, was totally inadequate to handle the diversity of interests ex- 
pressed by the men and women who visited us. We tried to cope by 
[soliciting paperbacks, but the gifts we received never seemed to answer 
the reading needs expressed. We tried borrowing books from other 
libraries in our system, but we found that the books requested by in- 
mates were rarely on the shelves in our branches. 

It was emotionally impossible for our staff to make trip after trip to 
jthese inmates and say "We have placed a reserve on that book for you. 
JYou'U have to wait another two weeks, another month, another year for 
jyour book." These men were waiting; they had nothing to do but wait. 
jWe had to find a way to fill their waiting with the books they wanted 
o read. 

Finally, with the support of the library administration, we developed 
an extensive paperback buying program so that we could fill the read- 
ing needs of the inmates as quickly as possible. It was at this point that 
kve began our apprenticeship in the fine art of negotiation. The Sheriff's 
jstaff in charge of Santa Rita felt that paperbacks were a threat to secu- 
ity: they could be set on fire, they would be used to clog toilets, they 

ould have pages soaked in drugs. It was then that we realized that to 
he Sheriff's staff the books were merely objects, a nuisance threatening 
n orderly custody situation. 

We realized that we as librarians had never sold the Sheriff's staff on 
the meaning of books for the inmates. So, we began a program of 
education. We got the staff members to read a few important titles: The 
\Crime of Punishment, the Autobiography of Malcolm X. We stressed 
iour professional role in selecting books, in having access to the review 
media and the bibliographic tools which would allow us to get the 
special vocational, educational and recreational reading matter the in- 
Jmates wanted. 

Most important of all, in our discussions with the Sheriff's staff, we 

[

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



stressed their professionalism in the area of custody. We recognized 
their special problems. In short, we negotiated. We traded off. 

The Sheriff's staff allowed us to bring in paperbacks and magazines, 
as long as their staff wasn't responsible for the collection and custody 
of these materials. We have therefore "lost" a great many paperbacks 
which we hope are being "recycled" in the compound, but through 
paperbacks we have gained the ability to quickly get the inmates what 
they want to read. Because we promised to observe certain penal code 
sections in regard to obscene or dangerous material, we do not have 
complete intellectual freedom in what reading matter is allowed. Yet 
because we agreed to these general guidelines, we are trusted to deliver 
the books to the men without any prior censorship by the Sheriff's staff. 

We are currently ready to implement a new program of library serv- 
ice to the Greystone maximum security section of Santa Rita, to the 
Courthouse Jail in Oakland, and to the new Alameda County Work 
Furlough facility. Each of these programs has been negotiated; perhaps 
we have "traded-off ' too much, but we have been able to create a 
program of service out of a formerly hostile situation. We have demon 
strated that we respect them as professionals in the field of custody; 
they have learned to reciprocate and trust us as professionals in library 
service. 




Ray Schroff, Alameda County Library bookmobile staff member. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 321 

The library staff involved in the Santa Rita program has gained a 
perspective on the meaning of library service which we could never 
have anticipated. In addition to the personally rewarding experience of 
bringing books to a vocally appreciative inmate community, we have 
earned to negotiate with the custodial staff for this community. We 
lave been forced to "sell" our services and therefore have learned to 
malyze and reaffirm their significance. 

We still have much to accomplish to reach all of these men and 
>vomen who cannot come to us, but we have learned much already. We 
lave made a good beginning.

Making TRACX — Travelling Resources Arizona-California 
Xtension 

Frances E. Thomas and Edith R. Eichorn 

Although political boundaries sometimes make efficient library serv- 
ice difficult, geographic barriers, intense summer heat, and sparsely 
populated areas can make library service nearly impossible. The Yuma 
City-County Bookmobile, The Roadrunner, is now making TRACX into 
California, in what appears to be a highly successful effort to erase these 
political and geographic boundaries. TRACX is an acronym meaning 
Travelling Resources Arizona-California 'Xtension. 

Representatives of both state libraries, Serra Regional Library Sys- 
tem, and the Yuma City-County Library met at ALA in Detroit in 1970 
for preliminary discussion of an interstate project under LSCA Title III. 
The wheels turned slowly while Mrs. Phyllis Dalton of California and 
Mrs. Marguerite Cooley of Arizona figured ways to avoid as much red 
tape as possible. The following May, representatives of the agencies 
involved met in Yuma to actually plan the project and to survey the 
area to be served. The distance necessary to travel for library services, 
desolate landscape, and the enthusiasm of the people interviewed rein- 
forced the desire to serve these remote desert dwellers and the isolated 
communities in the area. 

The interstate funding was relatively simple, as both states have 
"joint exercise of power" statutes and may contract with another state 
or agency for services. California State Library contracted with the 
Serra Regional Library System, which in turn contracted with the Yuma 
City-County Library. The Yuma City-County Library then contracted 
with the Arizona State Department of Library and Archives. 

July 1971 brought actual funding and the beginning of the project. 
The funding included $7,000 each from Arizona and California Title III 
funds, plus $2,000 from California Title I funds to supply library materi- 
als for the project. Yuma provided the bookmobile. 

Imperial County is divided north and south by the sand dunes and 
intense summer (six months) heat, with the largest concentration of 
population, including the county seat, on the west side in the fertile 
Imperial Valley. Sixty miles to the east is the more sparsely settled, but 
equally fertile, valley where Winterhaven, Bard, and Palo Verde are 
located. Besides being located on or near the Colorado River, these 
communities are separated from Arizona by this river, as it is the bound- 
ary between the states of California and Arizona. With the exception 
of Palo Verde, which is closer to Blythe, California, the citizens of the 
area do their shopping in Yuma, Arizona, for it is the closest shopping 
area of any size. 

The Imperial County Library has had small deposits of books in pri- 
vate homes in the area for many years, which helped serve the basic

needs of a few of the people. Others crossed the river to the Yuma 
City-County Library, which gave them free service for many years, 
then charged a $4 annual fee for a time, then the policy reverted back 
to free access to walk-in patrons. These stop-gap measures were con- 
stant reminders of the need to extend and enrich the library service to 
this area. 

By September, 1971, a detailed preliminary survey of the area to be 
served by the Arizona-California Cooperative Program had been com- 
pleted. The regularly scheduled bookmoblile runs began in October.

children; however, experience has taught us that children are more 
enthusiastic book selectors. In an attempt to give these children some 
of the benefits enjoyed by urban children, a summer program to en- 
courage reading, present a story hour, and craft instruction has been 
planned. Plans are also being made to show films chosen to appeal to 
all ages. None of the children in the areas visited have access to library 
material unless their parents drive many miles to take them. This, of 
course, applies to the adults also, but their age gives them the independ- 
ence that children do not possess. 

The purpose of this program was to extend and enrich library services 
to geographically remote areas in Yuma County, Arizona, and Imperial 
County, California. We have reached many people and have been en- 
thusiastically received. We feel that this program is very successful. By 
serving both sides of the Colorado River, we are able to provide more 
effective service to some of the areas already being served in Arizona, 
and we have also been able to extend service in Arizona. As a result of 
the extra resources, a bookmobile run to Gadsden, Arizona was begun 
in the fall. This was to the school, which is close to the Mexican border 
and has been inundated by the children of the Mexican people buying 
homes and living in San Luis, Arizona. The response was so good that 
the school provided a room for a library collection. We cataloged their 
books and added books from Yuma City-County Library to strengthen 
the collection. It is now a branch rather then a bookmobile stop. 

The increase in circulation of over 5,000 (30%) is evidence of the 
need for this project.

Kern County Library's Services to Penal Institutions 

Marsha Dolby 

Service to institutions has proved to be one of the most successful 
"outreach" programs undertaken by the Kern County Library System. 

Long before the term became a common one in library circles, the 
Kern County Library was reaching out to give service to the California 
Correctional Institution in Tehachapi and the Kern County Jail in Ba- 
kersfield, as well as to the County Juvenile Hall and the Children's 
Shelter Care facilities, as a regular part of the County Library plan to 
offer service to all residents of Kern County. 

The California Correctional Institution, constructed as the California 
Institute for Women in 1930, became an official station of the Kern 
County Library in September of 1935. Service was continued until the 
Institute closed its doors after the Tehachapi earthquake in July of 1952. 

When the facility was reopened as the California Institution for Men 
in 1955, Supervisor of Education Albert Paget contacted the Kern 
County Librarian, Eleanor Wilson, to determine whether the County 
Library would consider resuming library service to the men at the 
Institution, and CCI has been receiving regular service since that time. 

The Institution now houses libraries in both the minimum facility and 
the medium facility, each of which serves approximately 500 men. Both 
are supervised by the Institutional Librarian, Lloyd Schultz, an em- 
ployee of the State of California. Since Schultz is required to spend most 
of his time in the medium facility, the minimum facility is actually 
operated by the inmates themselves. 

Services furnished by the Kern County Library System include regu- 
lar monthly revolving shipments of books, phonograph records and art 
prints. Special requests are also mailed once each month. All facilities 
and services of the system are available to the men at CCI, including 
request and reference services through the library's TWX system. 
Schultz estimates that more than 65 percent of the prison's population 
are active readers. 

The Institution's book collection numbers 18,851, of which more than 
a third are supplied by the Kern County Library System. The remaining 
books, mostly non-fiction materials, have been purchased for the Insti- 
tution with state funds. 

Library fines for not returning materials on time consist of loss of 
privileges, according to Schultz, although there has never been a major 
undesirable incident at either library. 

One of the most important aspects of the relationship between the 
Institution and the Kern County Library System, according to Librarian 
Schultz, is that CCI is treated exactly like every other branch in the 
system. 

"Anything we request from library headquarters we receive," he 
said. "That lets the men know that somebody cares about them and

day. 

thinks about them as real people with needs and interests. If you get a 
tacky collection in a library like ours, the men are going to treat it that 
way." 

John Dominguis, inmate library clerk, put it another way. 

"Kern County always seems to send the kind of books the men want 
to read," he said. "They don't send a bunch of junk — and that's what 
it is — that's left over from someplace else." 

Service to the Kern County Jail was first begun in 1933, according to 
library records, and continued until 1945. The present system has been 
in operation since January of this year. 

The jail houses about 300 men and women, each of whom stay an 
average of 40 to 45 days. Many who are awaiting trial or transfer to 
another penal facility may remain for only a few days. 

This situation creates a special need for library materials, since other 
regularly organized activities for this constantly changing population 
are very difficult. It also poses special library problems, however, since 
inmates must be quickly provided with something they will want to 
read. 

In contrast to the full library service offered to the inmates of CCI, 



328 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

service to residents of the Kern County Jail is strictly on a request basis. 
No permanent collection is housed in the facility. 

A special section of shelving in library headquarters is reserved for 
"Jail" books. The inmates then select requests from a list of these hold 
ings, although they are welcome to request titles found in other sources 
if they wish to do so. Periodicals are also available to them. 

These requests are collected by guards each Wednesday morning and 
taken to library headquarters for processing. The books are delivered 
to the inmates the next day. Every inmate who requests a book receives 
one. If his specific request is not available, a book on the same subject, 
or fiction by the same author, is sent to him. 

Since the requests average about 180 per week, and since it is known 
that the inmates tend to share the books which are sent to them, it can 
then be estimated that well over half of the inmate population are 
taking advantage of this service. 

Most requests are for fiction material, with noticeable demand for 
Ayn Rand and James Baldwin, although many requests are for non- 
fiction work, particularly information involving the California Penal 
Code and magazines which discuss proposed changes in the death pen- 
alty and other aspects of current penology. 

As with the collection at CCI, few books have been lost and little 
damage has been reported. Inmates have been told that any abuse of 
the library system will result in its being denied to them; however, jail 
administrators feel that it is not this but the rare opportunity to exercise 
individual responsibility which serves to protect the library program at 
the jail. 

Two other county penal facilities are currently receiving library serv- 
ice. The Lerdo Road Camp has been offering full library service, admin- 
istered by an inmate librarian, for two years. The Camp Owens boys 
camp, which has been using Kern County Library discards for many 
years, has, for the past year, been operating a small revolving collection 
which is checked and replenished periodically by a librarian from a 
branch library in a nearby town. 

Service to the County Juvenile Hall and the Children's Shelter Care 
units developed out of a suggestion made by a patron in 1965. Service 
was provided only to the Juvenile Hall during the first year, as the 
authorities suggested, but proved so successful that it was extended to 
the Children's Shelter Care the following year. 

Service to both boys and girls in Juvenile Hall is provided on a bi- 
weekly basis, and consists of both book-talking sessions and a revolving 
collection of approximately 90 books in each of the three Juvenile Hall 
sections. 

The book-talking librarian weeds and adds to the collection in her 
section during each visit, resulting in an approximate 33 per cent 
turnover in books every two weeks. 

Books selected for the book talks and for the revolving collection are 
chosen to reflect the interests of teenage readers; however, these pa- 
trons may also request additional titles if they wish. 

The County Children's Shelter Care unit houses children who are in 



43—15 5 100 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 



329 



the custody of the county for various reasons. Their ages may vary from 
pre-school through elementary school; their number may vary from 
four or five to 30 or 40 children. 

The librarian who makes the weekly visits to this unit must then tailor 
her service each week to her patrons. She may give a story hour, a book 
talk, or just leave books to add to the revolving collection of 25 books 
which remains in the unit. She visits the Children's Shelter prepared to 
offer any of these services to whatever children of whatever ages await 
her. 

Reaching out to institutions HAS been successful in Kern County and 
without the use of federal assistance. These programs are the result of 
judicious use of staff, time, collections and budgeting by current County 
Librarian Lois Magee, and by several County Librarians before her, 
including Eleanor Wilson, Gretchen Knief Schenk and John Hender- 
son. 

More could be done, of course, as always, if more money were avail- 
able to hire more staff, to buy more books, to increase service. But the 
important thing to the Kern County Library System is that SOME- 
THING CAN BE DONE, and done adequately, to provide service to 
these institutions through the careful use of a library's current re-

Libros en espanol! Miguel Salazar helps Monterey County children make their choices.

Added Library Services for the Spanish-Speaking in 
Monterey County 

Miguel Escalante Salazar, II 

The day was bright and sunny as the branch library supervisor and 
the children's librarian and myself drove down the Salinas Valley to the 
little town of Chualar, California. I was about to see my first branch 
library and meet its librarian. The welcome was a warm one, as was the 
day. We were chatting about the aims of the consultant position to 
speakers of Spanish, when all of a sudden, the small library which I must 
say consists of a small room adjoining the local fire truck station, became 
engulfed with about 50 young people. We had company from the near- 
by school's fourth and fifth grades. They all wanted books and more 
books and so they met head-on with four librarians. I was spotted almost 
immediately and put to work. The children did not hesitate one mo- 
ment to speak to me in Spanish. I was amazed as I heard some of the 
children speak a Spanish so beautiful that I could scarcely believe what 
my ears heard. I responded and then the eyes of the children became 
even more communicative with excitement and joy as they heard me 
respond in their language. 

Soon a tug at my side as a little, young man wanted me to help him 
select a big lettered book. A big lettered book for a fifth grade level 
child? Yes, his was a special request as he had lost his glasses during the 
summer and was unable to have them replaced. His special request was 
for a book on sports in Spanish. Luckily we had one; however not in 
large print. In a very few moments I found that the young man was an 
excellent reader of Spanish as learned in his native Mexico. I took the 
reading glasses problem to his teacher and a very important problem 
was on its way toward being solved. Yes, these were very demanding 
young library patrons, and in such a hurry as most of them had buses 
to meet, and the 15 minutes allotted for the library were all too soon 
gone. Quickly and happily we tried to meet their demands. 

The story hours for the children were most successful wherever they 
were held. The low-keyed instruction was added to the regular story 
hour and implemented with bilingually written books. The children 
were quite aware of other cultures and languages and readily used the 
morning Spanish salutation "Buenos dias Don Miguel" and "Adios, has- 
ta la vista." The Three Little Pigs in a Spanish interpretation can be so 
delightful! The children loved it. 

Chualar, California is located about ten miles from Salinas. The Chua- 
lar school district has about 300 students. In this number we find about 
260 Spanish-surnamed young people, all eager to speak, read and write 
their native Spanish, as well as learn to speak, read and write English 
just as soon as possible. We as librarians have a challenge and this 
challenge we are happy to meet with a bilingual and bicultural ap- 
proach as was evident on my very first day of work. What a job! What

a beautiful opportunity! 

Monterey County's 18 branch libraries had always been geared tc 
English-speaking people even though one-fifth of the county's popula 
tion or 50,000 are speakers of Spanish, mostly of Mexican descent. The 
county library has now begun to change that, and through a federal 
program enough funds were made available to hire a consultant. This 
didn't include any funds for purchase of books and so these funds were 
made available from the county book budget by the Monterey County 
Librarian, Lois Koolwyk. Use of funds paid through taxes by the Span- 
ish-speaking community for their library collections was a very wise 
decision, as it will reap much good in the future. 

What do speakers of Spanish want as reading material? This question 
was answered loud and clear and the next step was to find out whether 
they would be readily available. It has been rather difficult to secure 
what was needed, but books on, of and about Mexico are now becoming 
more available in this country through very reliable sources in San 
Francisco and Los Angeles. When it was necessary to deal with Mexican 
or South American or Spanish publishing houses, results were much 
better than expected. If possible, dealing with American companies was 
the best; however they did need much guidance and direction in wise 
and selective buying. The subjects desired were many and included 
history in every category, biography, science and arts, both fiction and 
non-fiction. The list is long and very interesting reading, from Cer- 
vantes to Pablo Neruda. The collection attempts to include something 
for everybody, from the children to the senior citizen. 

As we visited other branch libraries further south in the Salinas Val- 
ley, we again met with similar situations in the communities of Gon- 
zales, Soledad, San Lucas and Greenfield. The adult community has 
been difficult to contact; however in the Greenfield area several 
evening meetings were held and many adults came to the book review 
sessions, and soon after townhall-type meetings continued and library 
services available to the general public were discussed. The special 
requests followed pretty much along the same subjects of learning to 
speak, read and write both English and Spanish, and such requests as 
Mariano Azuela's novels, Guzman's historical descriptions of the people 
of Mexico, and of course some things on citizenship and auto repair. 
These communities will soon make their local library a very vital part 
of their lives. 

What of the program for the future? The program is ready for further 
in-depth concentrated development. Libraries are complex to those 
who have been unserved for so long. High on the list is familiarization 
to the family groups of all phases of library services; implementation of 
modern equipment, such as cassette recorders, movies and many other 
marvelous ideas that can enhance patrons' using the library's many 
resources. It is amazing how many Spanish-surnamed individuals do not 
know their parents' language. So, it was not amazing to receive the 
many requests for Spanish-language materials to assist them in learning 
to speak, read and write espanol. The same may be said for English- 
language materials. Cassettes are to play a very important part in this 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 333 

phase of language learning. Imagine the thrill of hearing "Por favor, 
pasen Uds.; nuestra casa es su casa." And Sf, it should be! 

Ed. note: Lois Koolwyk, Monterey County Librarian, adds: "This was 
a one-year project (actually November through June) . It is now being 
developed on a broader two-county (Monterey and Santa Cruz) base, 
system- wide. Currently we have about 1,000 books either bilingual or 
in Spanish. We circulate about 200-300 a month in our branches. 

"The new program will be a true 'outreach' program, with a larger 
staff (additional part-time aides in three target areas) and a larger fund 
for materials, special programs and direct communications with in- 
dividuals and groups."

Ontario City Library's Outreach Programs 

Barbara Flynn and Leonard Wheeler 

The Ontario City Library has developed three outstanding outreach 
programs to serve Ontario and the west end of San Bernardino County. 
The programs have been in operation since December, 1971, and the 
salaries for the personnel are funded by the Emergency Employment 
Act. The three programs are: Outreach to the Handicapped, Outreach 
to Business, and Outreach to the Bilingual. 

Outreach to the Handicapped and Shut-ins 

The Outreach Program to the Handicapped and Shut-ins of the On- 
tario community is designed to fulfill a basic tenet of library philosophy: 
library services and materials should be available to all citizens of a 
community, whether or not they are physically able to get to the library 
building. Hence, the motto of the Ontario Library's Outreach Program 
to the Handicapped and Shut-ins is "Take the Library to the patrons." 
It should be noted that credit is due the Redondo Beach Public Library, 
after whose program this one was modeled. 

Mrs. Terry Essex has formulated a program to adhere to that motto. 
She serves individuals who are confined to residences, rest homes, and 
convalescent hospitals. In the latter institutions, she has instituted two- 
hour film shows (with average attendance of 300 patients!) and the 
program has been so well received that she projects the need for an 
assistant to expand the programs to four film shows every day in each 
of the six convalescent hospitals. In addition, her outreach program to 
these patients includes weekly book, magazine, and pamphlet delivery. 
The patrons have increased their requests for this service to such an 
extent that, in addition to delivery service, Mrs. Essex is planning to set 
up permanent book, magazine and pamphlet collections consisting of 
donated and discarded materials to and from the Ontario Library and 
its patrons, in the convalescent hospitals. Thus, more informational 
material will be available to patient patrons at any given time. 

For patrons confined to rest homes and residences, blind or hand- 
icapped, Mrs. Essex has designed a delivery service for books, records, 
tapes, cassettes, braille machines, talking books and tapes. Personal 
conversation is well-appreciated by these individuals. For the blind, she 
takes requests for talking books and tapes which she obtains from On- 
tario Library's extensive braille collection or from the deposit library of 
the Braille Institute of America. Additionally, she insures that blind 
patrons get their braille machines repaired and acts as an information 
center on braille materials for them. 

As the demand for these services increases, Mrs. Essex is planning for 
future expansion in terms of programs, materials, and personnel. A 
large job for a solitary lady!

City Library.

Outreach to Business 

The Outreach Program to the Business Community is an educational 
and informative public relations program, specifically designed to in- 
form individuals and the business community about library materials 
and services available to them. In taking the library to businessmen, Mr. 
William Teal, who is in charge of this program, has visited the offices 
of two hundred businessmen. He has addressed civic organizations, 
| service clubs, and other associations in the area. 

Mr. Teal's contacts with local businessmen have significantly aided 
the development of the newly established "Business Information Cen- 
ter" in the library. Besides the more important general business tools, 
J the Center now holds business reports and periodical material pub- 
| lished by more than 200 local business firms. All together these materi- 
I als provide an accurate picture of the city's economic development and 
j planning at present and in the future. 

As part of the Outreach Program to Businessmen, Mr. Teal has de- 

j signed a series of seminars which involve local businessmen as partici- 

I pants in discussing and debating topics of specific interest to them, such 

i as advertising, public relations, administration, records management, 

sales promotion, salesmanship, and security. 

In catering to local businessmen's demands, a monthly film series on 
current topics, such as management of personnel, retailing, etc., is be- 
ing projected to begin in September. These films, many of which are 
produced by the U.S. Small Business Administration, will aid the local 
businessmen in many aspects of daily operations as well as present new 
ideas directly applicable to "small business." 

The encouraging response from local businessmen in advising the 
library of necessary purchases of library materials to aid them and in 
using library facilities and materials more frequently than in the past, 
has led Mr. Teal to project future goals of the Outreach Program. In 
addition to building the collection in the Business Information Center 
in terms of books, pamphlets, periodicals, records, etc., Mr. Teal plans 
expanding his seminar series to the whole business community by pro- 
gramming them on cable TV which will be introduced to Ontario 
citizens in the next year or two. 

The establishment of an Outreach program to the business people is 
indeed proving to be a positive step in the library's policy of reaching 
out to previously untapped library users. The Outreach to Business 
Program has become a two-way street — the library reaching out to it 
and the business community reaching back into the library. 

Outreach to the Bilingual 

Mrs. Mary Villagomez heads the Bilingual Program which is designed 
to inform the large Spanish-speaking Ontario City community about 
materials available in the library and the facilities available for their use, 
and to elicit response in terms of library needs to these patrons' de- 
mands.

Major emphasis has been placed on reaching out to Spanish-speaking 
children in local schools. The local elementary school district has helped 
five schools to set up classes for Spanish-speaking children who do not 
speak English or have problems with English. Mrs. Villagomez tutors 
these classes and attempts to introduce these patrons to the library's 
materials available in Spanish and English which will help them with 
their language problems as well as their general studies. One example 
of the help this program offers is noteworthy. A five-year-old girl would 
not speak either to her teacher or to classmates. Mrs. Villagomez spoke 
with her in Spanish and learned that she was ashamed because she did 
not speak English. Since Mrs. Villagomez has tutored her in English, 
this young girl has begun to converse with her classmates and share the 
adventure of learning with book and multi-media materials. 

In addition to working in the schools, Mrs. Villagomez attempts to 
reach the young adult and adult Spanish-speaking patrons. Flyers in 
Spanish are distributed to target areas in the community. They deline- 
ate library programs and materials specifically geared to the needs — 
domestic, economic, intellectual — of the community. 

In-house activity for Mrs. Villagomez involves assisting patrons who 
speak only Spanish, and translating material upon request for staff and 
members of the community. The community's response to the bilingual 
program has been tremendous, with generous offers of assistance from 
local church, city and private organizational groups. 

Plans to expand the Bilingual Program are under way. Programs will 
begin including a weekly film to the Spanish-speaking community at a 
neighborhood gathering place, a Spanish story hour for young children 
to be located in a convenient area of the local community, and basic 
English classes both in the library and in the local Spanish-speaking 
community. 

Other outreach plans include service to doctors and dentists in coop- 
eration with MEDLINE and the UCLA Biomedical Library, and out- 
reach to labor.

DARIC: Riverside City and County Public Library's Drug 
Information Center 

Weamena Carr and Fran Phinney 

"Veary good disspla," "government propaganda," "Very Good," 
"You should have more copies of The Choice is Yours" "I think it has 
good books," "give samples, give samples, give samples . . ." These and 
more earthy comments grace the desk clipboard at Riverside, Cali- 
fornia's Marcy Branch, one of the first libraries to embrace the social 
responsibility of establishing a Drug Abuse Reference Information Cen 
ter (DARIC). 

And Marcy Library does give samples. Not of drugs, as the clipboard 
scribbler thought to be cute, but of a wide variety of free literature 
donated by concerned organizations also fighting one of the knottiest 
problems of this era. It was through their local Congressman that 
Riverside librarians were able to obtain the giveaway pamphlets and 
brochures, from both private and government agencies. Thus, there is 
some truth to the challenge of the ninth grader who wrote 
"government propaganda." 

But Marcy 's aim is to keep up with any and all sources of the latest 
knowledge on drug research, and to make it available to patrons of all 
ages in an atmosphere as free of Establishment austerity as possible. 
This neighborhood library, located on the edge of the downtown busi- 
ness district in a city of some 146,000, tries to be inviting, and conducive 
to anyone to drop in, to find easily accessible facts about drugs, to feel 
free of any "official" stigma in reading or taking the material away with 
them. It's neutral ground. Reference help is available if desired; other- 
wise, patrons are free to browse among the circulating hardbound 
books (mostly purchased from the branch's Adult Book funds) , among 
the paperbacks (bought with Young Adult Book funds), or to help 
themselves to the giveaway literature. 

Current, pertinent magazine coverage on drugs and research are 
photocopied and gathered together in folders for ready access. Work- 
study employees, under the direction of Ellen Thompson, program 
coordinator for Riverside City and County Public Library, read and 
selected these magazine excerpts. Further information is available in 
recordings and films. 

One father, disturbed by his daughter's interest in marijuana, spent 
several hours reading articles gathered on the drug. He then admitted 
he found reason to question his own former rigid opinions concerning 
marijuana. He said he felt he had gained some understanding of its use, 
at least to the point where he could talk intelligently about it with his 
daughter. 

But the DARIC desk does sometimes get much closer to the problem; 
its renown has spread, so desperate appeals for immediate medical help

come in on the Marcy Library phone line. A listing of service agencies 
is at hand to provide help. 

On December 1, 1971, a noon-to-9 p.m. continuous showing of films 
about drugs introduced the DARIC project at Marcy. Newspaper and 
radio publicity announced the show, and audiences were asked to fill 
out rating sheets on the preview films. 

Staff members at Marcy, working with and listening to patrons, real- 
ize that the DARIC desk is a vital branch function. One mother, who 
visited Marcy with her child for help on an elementary science project, 
found the information about mice in the Children's Department. As she 
was about to ask about alcohol, she interrupted herself with, "Oh yes, 
I know it's at the DARIC desk with the information about drugs." 

From its inception, the library's drug abuse reference program re- 
ceived the sanction and blessing of officialdom. Mrs. Thompson attends 
the meetings of Riverside Drug Abuse Council, which, incidentally, are 
held in the Central Library. 

Mrs. Thompson, who is also coordinator of Young Adult Services for 
Riverside City and County system, and her staff, have prepared a bibli- 
ography, "Drug Abuse Information," plus an annotated booklist-book- 
mark, "Drug Information." Both list the best of current writings 
available on the subject, and are under constant revision. Single copies 
may be obtained by writing to Riverside Library, P.O. Box 468, River- 
side, Calif. 92502. 

Marcy Library finds itself with almost an embarrassment of riches in 
the area of enthusiasm for the program. Suggestions for expanding the 
service keep mounting. Unfortunately, Riverside's request for state aid 
in funding the DARIC program was turned down for 1972-73, and 
work-study grants tend to dwindle towards the end of the school year 
and dry up during summer months, making this source of staff aid 
unpredictable and fluctuating. This means the major work of the DAR- 
IC desk is left to the library staff in addition to their own responsibilities. 

DARIC is incorporated into many aspects of library work; for in- 
stance, school visits to the branch include a tour of the DARIC area, and 
students are encouraged to pass the information along to their parents. 

Possible grants are being explored through the various civic and 
social agencies involved in the program, to assure continuation of the 
operation. One level of service which could be accomplished with addi- 
tional funding would be installation of a separate phone line to the 
DARIC desk, which could be advertised through local papers, directo- 
ries and agencies, as the initial call to make for help or information on 
narcotics. The one line into the library now must be used to transact all 
branch busness. Staff to man the desk for longer periods would be 
helpful. Now the time on the desk must be shared by staff and work- 
study personnel, as they have the time free. Additional staff members 
could also be used to gather more materials from various agencies, and 
to participate in drug abuse information programs presented in schools, 
churches and to community groups. 



72—1.1 s 945 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 341 

This would mean DARIC could become the combining force for such 
diverse agencies as the narcotics division of the police department and 
the self-help, ex-user-centered CEDU, or My Family. A bank of taped 
information from drug users could be developed, to give a young person 
contemplating, or actually involved, a voice of experience from which 
to learn. Additional printed information could add to resources, as could 
posters, films and filmstrips. Marcy's supply of giveaway pamphlets is 
almost exhausted, with neither time nor personnel to solicit more. 
Giveaway kits could be assembled, containing drug abuse information 
for a variety of educational levels, from elementary school to adult. 

Even though outside money and staff necessary to expand the pro- 
gram are slow in coming, DARIC has already provided one example of 
what a library with limited resources, innovative staff and an interested 
community can do in social awareness. 

The ingredients of inquiry and information are here, where all ages 
have a common, unbiased meeting ground. Riverside Public Library 
has accepted the challenge of trying to reflect and respond to commu- 
nity concerns, and to add to cultural and social awareness. DARIC has 
served as a model and forerunner of similar programs which can be and 
are now being developed in other libraries.

jViva la Biblioteca! 

Jody Stevens 

Since the summer of 1968, farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley 
have looked forward eagerly to the arrival in their neighborhoods of the 
big red, white, and green Biblioteca Ambulante. From its cargo of 
"something for everybody," the bilingual extroverted staff dispenses 
books, magazines, comics, records, and miscellaneous library materials 
selected to meet the taste and language requirements of their patrons. 
Few rules are imposed, and the whole thing is freeform, happy, and best 
of all, successful — at least as far as the patrons are concerned. Funding, 
after the grant terminates in 1973, may be something else again. So far, 
however, our patron saints (especially St. Jude) and guardian angels 
have been hanging in there, and we hope they won't desert us at the 
crucial moment. 

Since its beginning in 1968, the Biblioteca Ambulante, a bookmobile 
project of the San Joaquin Valley Library System, has gone through 
three distinct phases. 

LSCA Grant 1968-70 

The first of these is the period during which the Biblioteca Am- 
bulante was a demonstration project completely funded by a large 
LSCA grant. A large portion of these funds went for the vehicle itself 
which was custom built. Among the accessories is a loud speaker-phono- 
graph system on which is played "Spanish Flea" as the Biblioteca Am- 
bulante enters each community. This music, plus the three-tone 
coloring of the bookmobile (red, white, and green like the Mexican 
flag), helped to attract many persons who had never before used a 
library or a bookmobile. Another item, necessary because of the empha- 
sis on coverage of rural isolated areas, is the chemical toilet which still 
baffles patrons. 

With its many accessories, the Biblioteca Ambulante served 33 loca- 
tions, including ranch labor camps, small Mexican communities, and 
OEO migrant labor camps. In serving these areas, it was necessary to 
"deanglicize" the library. This was achieved by simplifying registration 
and circulation procedures, building an experimental Spanish collec- 
tion, and employing local bilingual Mexican- American staff members. 

During this time, it was the purpose of the Biblioteca Ambulante to 
reach the Mexican- American farm laborers, and this goal was achieved 
with great success. 

Before the second goal of the project could be reached, the Biblioteca 
Ambulante was nearly eliminated. When the LSCA demonstration 
grant ended in June of 1970, although there was some carryover of 
funds, the member libraries needed to supply local funds if the project 
was to continue. The Fresno County Board of Supervisors refused to 
allocate these funds. After hearing pleas from Fresno County Library

personnel, Biblioteca Ambulante staff members, and interested citi- 
zens, seeing demonstrations by irate patrons and local Chicano organi- 
zations, and reading letters and postcards from Biblioteca Ambulante 
users throughout the valley, the Board reversed its decision. "jViva la 
Biblioteca!" 

System Project 1970-71 

1970-71, the second phase, was the critical year for the project, the 
year when many changes took place. 

While the Board of Supervisors had okayed the continuation of the 
Biblioteca Ambulante, it was with a 40% reduction in the budget. Much 
of this reduction was in the area of salaries. The director of the project, 
who wished to return to her home in Wisconsin, resigned and was 
replaced by a recent library school graduate. Further reductions came 
from the book budgets and extra-help funds. This left a staff of four 
full-time members. Two additional part-time staff members were pro- 
cured from and paid by local antipoverty agencies. 

While the budget was being cut, service was being extended. Tulare 
County Library joined the system and was recipient of five new stops. 
More stops were added in Kings and Fresno counties while other areas 
were eliminated. Among these was the Coalinga School District which 
is now providing its own service to Mexican- American farm laborers. 

Just as the chaos of change was subsiding and the program was begin- 
ning to stabilize, notice came that the U.S. House of Representatives 
was to vote on a bill which would have a direct affect on the Biblioteca 
Ambulante. We had been informed a few weeks earlier that the project 
would be awarded small LSCA grants for the Fiscal Years 1971-72 and 
1972-73. The defeat of the bill in Congress would result in the elimina- 
tion of the funds for the Biblioteca Ambulante. Once again, an all-out 
effort was made to save the project. Letters from the Biblioteca Am- 
bulante staff and hundreds of postcards and letters from patrons were 
sent to all valley representatives. Fortunately, the bill was passed and 
the Biblioteca Ambulante continued ambling down the Central Valley. 

Joint Project 1971-73 

With the LSCA grant assured and the county contributions approved, 
the Biblioteca Ambulante is now in its third, and we hope not final, 
phase. It is during this period that most of our effort has been concen- 
trated on achieving the second goal of the project, to lead our Spanish- 
speaking patrons to larger central collections. At this time, however, it 
is impossible, as these larger collections are not available. We are still 
a Mexican library separate from the Anglo library, but some progress 
has been and is being made. 

Much of this progress is a result of a bi-weekly radio program con- 
ducted by the Biblioteca Ambulante staff on a local Spanish-language 
station. Begun in February, 1971, this form of publicity has greatly 
affected the activities of the Biblioteca Ambulante. The staff originally 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 345 

appeared on the program as a result of an appearance by the librarian 
from the West Fresno Branch. He was interviewed by the hostess in an 
effort to publicize branch activities. At the same time, he mentioned 
other programs including the Biblioteca Ambulante. In the list of Bibli- 
oteca Ambulante materials I had given him was the title of a rather 
controversial Mexican magazine to which we had subscribed since the 
beginning of the project. The station then received a number of com- 
plaints about the magazine. In answer to these complaints, the Bibli- 
oteca Ambulante appeared on the program to defend the acquisition. 
After this first program, we became the staff who came to dinner. Every 
other Wednesday, we discuss new books, announce schedule changes 
and special activities, answer questions about the project, and take 
requests for specific titles. 

The requested books are then sent to the branch nearest the patron 
with a note asking the branch librarian to notify the patron that his 
books are available. This is one method by which we are trying to lead 
patrons to local branches. Two other methods have also been employed. 

Biblioteca Ambulante staff members recently attended the Fresno 
County regional branch meetings and presented a slide program of 
activities and displays of Spanish materials available to them. Many 
branch librarians were unaware of our services and their availability to 
branches. At the same time, the librarians showed an interest in the 
types of Spanish-language materials we have and in the possibility of 
acquiring these materials for their branches. 

In order to assist the branches in their selection of Spanish-language 
books, as well as to answer requests from librarians in all parts of the 
country for suggestions in acquiring Spanish books, the staff has com- 
piled a complete list of the Biblioteca Ambulante's Spanish titles. This 
booklist, Libros en Espanol, is available, in limited quantities, free of 
charge. 

Another ramification of the radio program is an increase in demand 
for Spanish materials within the city of Fresno. Besides adding two 
bookmobile stops within the urban area, we have organized a system 
to circulate books from our office in the basement of the main branch 
of Fresno County Public Library. This new procedure has brought 
more attention to the needs of urban Spanish-speaking patrons and has 
resulted in better cooperation and more communication between Bibli- 
oteca Ambulante staff and staffs of system libraries, who are becoming 
more interested in serving the Spanish-speaking members of the com- 
munity. 

This interest is evidenced by a Library Research Survey being con- 
ducted in South Fresno by Fresno County Public Library under the 
Emergency Employment Act. The two-year program will not only de- 
scribe the services now offered by the system, but will also go directly 
to the people in order to find out what changes need to be made to 
provide the kind of library service most useful to them in their day-to- 
day living. It is hoped that this survey will result in increased use of the 
library by the Spanish-speaking population and increased awareness by 
the library of the particular needs of this segment of the population. 



346 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

The biggest problem encountered by the Biblioteca Ambulante this 
year has been the acquisition of Spanish books. Requests for specific 
titles, many of them out-of-print, the need for materials printed in 
Mexico rather than in Spain, and the inadequacy of translations of 
English best-sellers are evidence of increased demand, but make the 
supply more difficult to obtain. 

One solution to the problem came in the form of a loan of a collection 
of Spanish books to the Biblioteca Ambulante from the Mexican govern- 
ment. Through two local Mexican-American attorneys, in cooperation 
with the Mexican Consul, the Biblioteca Ambulante was the recipient 
of several thousand volumes of Mexican paperbacks which were pub- 
lished by the Secretaria de Education Publica in Mexico City. These 
biographies, monographs, textbooks, and popular interest materials 
have been a great addition to the Biblioteca Ambulante Spanish collec- 
tion. 

A second solution to this always-present problem is direct acquisition 
from Spanish bookstores in large metropolitan areas. It has been found 
that mail orders of specific titles are filled approximately 40% of the 
time. It is hoped that on-the-spot purchase of materials may prove to 
be more satisfactory in lieu of the ideal. 

The acquisition of a strong Spanish collection is especially important 
at this time. While the Biblioteca Ambulante's LSCA grant will termi- 
nate on June 30, 1973, it is very likely, due to the success of the project, 
that it will be continued and supported through local funds. Thus, 
because service to the Spanish-speaking population is continuing and 
expanding through the Biblioteca as well as through the System librar- 
ies, more and more materials in Spanish will be required. 

The Biblioteca Ambulante is reaching toward its second goal of lead- 
ing the Mexican-American patrons to larger central collections and 
assisting system libraries in making sure that these larger collections in 
Spanish are available. If the Biblioteca Ambulante is able to achieve this 
second goal, it will then be a resounding success.

East Palo Alto Library Services Project — San Mateo County 
Library 

Joy Chase, Wiley Hampton, and Virginia Ross 

The East Palo Alto Library (originally called Francisquito in the 
1930's when library service was provided from a small portable building 
on the elementary school grounds) is now located in a well-lighted 
storefront former shoe store. Its neighbors, in the Nairobi Shopping 
Center, are the Food Stamp office and the Neighborhood Legal Aid 
Society. Not far away are Nairobi Joe's, the Checkmate Inn, the Dum- 
barton Club and the Bank of America, the Welfare Department, the 
rodent control people, the Nairobi Co-Op Grocery, and a Quickwash. 

In 1968, when the library was located in a small and uninviting place, 
practically off the freeway, a special grant was needed to increase its 
effectiveness and usefulness. To do this it would be necessary to: 

Make the existing collection of books relevant to the community 
needs, 

Buy audiovisual materials and equipment, 

Add a skilled staff, including community residents, 

Move to a better location, 

Add a meeting room for more cultural and educational programs. In 
short, bring the library to the people. 

In East Palo Alto the people are mostly black and poor. This unincor- 
porated area, which is popularly called Nairobi, is in the southeast 
corner of San Mateo County. It has a locally elected municipal council 
which acts as an advisory board to the County Board of Supervisors. It 
covers about three square miles with a population of 18,330. It has a high 
crime rate for its size. 

The San Mateo County Library System, in July of 1968, with the 
concurrence and approval of the San Mateo County Board of Supervi- 
sors and the East Palo Alto Municipal Council, received a federal library 
services grant, under the Library Services and Construction Act, Title 
I, to be used as the East Palo Alto Project. The original grant, in the 
amount of $120,809, was for a two-year period, August 1968-July 1970. 
The grant has been extended in succeeding years, but at a decreasing 
level of federal support: $40,000 in federal funds will be available for 
1972/73. As the allocation of federal funds has decreased, funding re- 
sponsibility for program components has been increasingly supplied by 
the County Library budget. The extension of the Project also made it 
I possible to initiate two additional aspects of outreach programs to the 
I disadvantaged — service to penal institutions and service to a predomi- 
inantly Spanish-speaking community. Although the grant was to the 
i County Library, we have included residents of adjoining incorporated 
| cities as recipients of the service: East Menlo Park residents in the East 
, Palo Alto component and East Redwood City residents in the Spanish- 
j speaking component. The geographic isolation and demographic char-

acteristics of these city areas create a need which overrides the political 
boundary separating these independent municipalities from the Coun- 
ty Library area. 

The project grant has made it possible to move the library to a larger 
and more accessible location, to add a children's librarian, reference 
librarian, two library trainees and other supportive staff as needed. 
Films, filmstrips, records and cassettes have been added to the collec- 
tion. The library meeting room is used regularly by Nairobi College and 
other community groups. The latest survey taken shows a 34% increase 
in book stock, a 37% increase in the number of registered borrowers, 
a 44% increase in the circulation of materials and a 130% increase in 
the amount of reference transactions done. The library is open to the 
public sixteen hours more per week. A Bookpower Bus, stocked with 
paperbacks, cruises the downtown streets bringing services and library 
materials to people wherever they are gathered at regularly scheduled 
stops. The Bus also visits people who are shut-ins, and publicizes com- 
munity events by loudspeaker whenever requested. (This program has 
now expanded by an additional grant through the Peninsula Library 
System to include pockets of poor black residents in five cities on the 
Peninsula.) 

If a library is to be useful to a community, it must change as the 
community changes. Such responsive change is not always possible 
within the structure of traditional established budgetary "work load" 
formulas, Civil Service rules and other bureaucratic strictures of gov- 
ernmental agencies. The Project funds provided the opportunity to 
explore nontraditional approaches to the provision of library service — 
such exploration and experimentation would not have been possible 
within the limitations imposed by the county's traditional approach to 
determining budget allocations and priorities. 

An additional difficulty is that the library and its staff may lack the 
skills and resources necessary to deal with the changed situation even 
when they do have a consciousness of their duty to the people. For 
instance: the library held an art show for local artists. This was the first 
time an art show was held in the community. Many artists who show 
regularly "across the freeway" had never been seen at home. The 
evening of the show, the library gave a reception which was well at- 
tended. Artists who lived relatively close to each other met for the first 
time. There was talk of starting a local artists' club. We solicited for 
several months the names of artists and their artist friends who would 
like to show their works, we felt we had clearly put the message out on 
the drums that it was for everyone in the community. But the question 
was still asked, "Can 'the people' also show their works at this show?" 
Will the library always be considered a middle-class Establishment insti- 
tution? Can we ever be fully an integral part of this community? Who 
really are "the people"? And, can we really serve them? We try. 

We try to reach the people by borrowing and showing movies like 
The Battle of Algiers, which about 70 people watched. By starting an

African Pen Pal Club, with about 120 members now helping our chil- 
dren broaden their horizons by writing to children in Africa. By having 
students from the community working in various aspects of the library 
programs and operation. By hiring both highly educated and new ca- 
reer black personnel. By ensuring that 90% of the staff live in the 
community and are therefore involved in its activities, hopes, dreams 
or angers. By interacting with agencies and departments in the commu- 
nity and sharing common problems and goals. 

Although library schools do not train us to be politically astute, to use 
the news media effectively, to work video camera and TV equipment, 
or to drive a step-van filled with paperback books . . . these are things 
we also learn to do. 

Personally, I feel we have to act as Librarian /Counselor in many 
situations in East Palo Alto. For example: A student who worked for us 
seemed to have a problem with heroin and pills; he was locked out of 
his apartment for not paying his rent; his girl friend took off for several 
weeks with his car and his belongings; he was arrested for allegedly 
possessing stolen goods and I found myself on the phone, one morning, 
answering an OR (Own Recognizance) officer saying, "Yes, he is em- 
ployed here." Or, an employee is in sobbing tears, and we are all upset, 
because a woman ran into the library and took refuge behind the 
circulation desk from a man who was trying to stab her with a knife. Or, 
a patron comes in with an $80.00 overdue notice and tells me her 
problem trying to feed her six wayward children on welfare! 

Are we really working on an optimal level? Is it possible to keep at 
an optimal level in a high crime area where you are exposed to, not just! 
being the bystander at crimes, but many times being the victim? Are 
we really serving the people now? Do we still have a long way to go 
before more people call in to ask: "Where can I get a meal for my kids? 
I'm out of food stamps and money and I don't know where to go for 
help." 

SERVICE TO PENAL INSTITUTIONS 

In June, 1970, a program of library service to the county jails and 
juvenile correctional facilities was initiated as an extension of the East 
Palo Alto Project. It was thought that this was a logical extension of a 
project designed to serve disadvantaged members of the local commu- 
nity since a majority of the inmates of these institutions are members 
of minority groups. This program was begun with a survey of three 
adult and two juvenile units. Physical plant, inmate population and 
material needs were briefly studied. At the present writing (June 1972) , 
one of the adult units has been closed, but service has been extended 
to two additional adult units and another juvenile facility, making the 
total number of county corrections facilities four adult and three juve- 
nile. There is an approximate daily population of 800, excluding staff, 
and the approximate yearly population is 12,000 adults, 3,500 juveniles. 
At the outset several goals were desired: 

Maximum personal contact with people — inmates and jail staffs. 



VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 351 

An informal easy flow of materials and ideas. 

A minimum of structure and ritual. 

An intense attempt to keep from prejudging inmates or staff. 

Recognition that the inmates were the primary recipients of the 
service, but that staff needs should be met when possible. 

Each facility was different, with unique populations and physical 
settings, therefore service to each would be modified accordingly. 

Also, it was felt that any new procedure process would be looked at 
suspiciously as possible "security" problems and certain attitudes would 
exist: 

In the whole of the penal schemata, the library function and 
reading in general might be looked upon as potentially threatening 
as a break in daily routines, and therefore perhaps a security risk. 
Given the images of the public library and the "offender" as held 
by the majority population, this service might possibly be viewed 
as a service the offenders don't deserve. 

As a priority the library process most likely would be below 
"education" with "control" as the highest priority. 

Given these problems — logistics and attitudes — the simplest program 
developed in an existential manner: try something and if it fails, recog- 
nize that and try something else. In brief: weekly, biweekly or monthly 
visits are made to talk with inmates and staffs, survey collections, weed, 
place new books and determine what agency or volunteer programs 
were beginning or ending. The librarian visits are planned to coincide 
with breaks in routine, lunch, end of work days or other "off" times for 
maximum personal contacts. The two greatest problems found in logis- 
tics are inherent in the retrospective nature of library service: quantity 
of material and time elements. These are frustrating but the problems 
of attitudes toward the offender and reading are both frustrating and 
discouraging — from the librarian's point of view — with prejudice, fear, 
and ignorance being three of the most overwhelming negative atti- 
tudes. 

Adult recreational and general educational materials are supplied by 
frequent purchases of paperback books, local school system discards, 
local donations and volunteer work. Legal materials for case informa- 
tion or pleadings is nil, but a possible linkup between a local law library, 
a volunteer worker and interested jail staff may provide a partial solu- 
tion at the unsentenced level. Local school district support for reading 
materials is nil in the juvenile facilities; however, an unsatisfactory but 
working relationship exists where materials are provided some units in 
the unique educational program now in operation at the juvenile facili- 
ties. 

This, in brief, is the written materials aspect of the project. Discarded 
records, posters, selected gift periodicals, local information, maps and 
other odds and ends are acquired and placed sporadically. Films were 
planned but through the local school district these are provided for the 



352 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

juveniles and selected features are shown at the adult units — the 
project's one-man staff also felt that planning and execution of this facet 
was not feasible at the present time. Videotape equipment was pur- 
chased for the East Palo Alto Project, and has been used with great 
success in two of the juvenile facilities. Essentially the VTR is used as 
a "therapeutic" tool, providing quick replay of role playing, psycho- 
dramas and other techniques. As used with sensitive and interested 
staff, this equipment has incredible actual and potential usage as a 
mirror or memory to evoke introspection and projection of felt or 
phantasized affects. The equipment and librarian operator also cooper- 
ate with a weekly psychiatric review of staff techniques and individual 
attitude /behavior as taped in an earlier session. Future uses of the 
equipment and operator in this project include an interest in coopera- 
tion with adult units paralleling use in the juvenile agency and an 
educational program using closed-circuit TV in jail units. 
In summation: 

It has been found that supplying common recreational and gen- 
eral educational reading materials is logistically feasible on the 
county level. 

Legal materials provoke political and attitudinal problems dis- 
proportionate to the logistical problem. 

Some staff in the county's adult penal system are desirous of 
professional reading materials which the County Library is able to 
provide. 

The local school district does not adequately meet the unique 
library needs of the juvenile facilities. 

Videotape equipment has almost unlimited use as a communica- 
tions/therapeutic tool for individual and group corrections situa- 
tions where behavior change is desired. 

SERVICE TO SPANISH-SPEAKING 

This program, a very modest expansion of the East Palo Alto Project, 
was intended as a one-year pilot demonstration of the potential or 
feasibility of specialized decentralized library service in a suburban 
area with special population and social characteristics. It was found that 
for informative purposes and limited exposure to a selected public of 
specialized library (written) materials, a vehicle of the step- van size 
with a limited quantity of materials could successfully operate in such 
a suburban setting. 

It is necessary to make a preliminary on-site survey to determine 
population characteristics and distribution and assess community char- 
acteristics, but flexibility as to locations and operations is crucial — that 
is, preconceived attitudes are necessary for planning, but ability to 
change becomes more necessary than a rigid library structure and 
procedure. 

In brief: Minimal statistics were kept, written materials were ac- 
quired and made available as demand fluctuated, and the librarian's 
attitude changed relative to local needs, book loss (numerically) was

minimal because of the personal contact and population size, the nature 
of the materials (locally bought paperbacks) kept costs low. 

It was hoped that a system-wide program of specialized library serv- 
ice would result from the pilot project — both in terms of expansion of 
collections and addition of specialized personnel in the static locations. 
Also, the concept of decentralized specialized bookmobile service is felt 
to be logistically possible in the suburban setting.

Operation Outreach — Santa Ana Public Library's Summer 
Activities Program 

Hildah Pemberton 
"Do you have a book to read? 
Can you or I or anyone know 
The fun you'll have with a book to read?" 

These words, part of the "Library Song," will for the fifth consecutive 
year be sung and taught to the youngsters of Santa Ana as they partici- 
pate in the Santa Ana Public Library's summer activities program, 
"Operation Outreach." 

This effort, an outgrowth of a long-range six-point program for com- 
munity relations improvement in Santa Ana, was inaugurated in 1968 
as a summer pilot program by the library's community services section. 
The library chose to help the disadvantaged by providing a summer 
book recreation program to acquaint youngsters in all areas of the city 
with books and the library, and instill in them the feeling that reading 
is fun. 

In 1968, Operation Outreach reached more than 1,500 Santa Ana 
children with book-related recreational programs which involved the 
library staff and 50 young volunteers who donated more than 650 hours 
conducting story hour programs, singing and other activities at selected 
bookmobile stops, parks, and Community Action Centers. 

Volunteers were trained in the skills needed in children's library 
work at one-day workshops. These, in turn, were followed by two-hour 
briefing sessions by qualified professionals during the 10-week special 
program. 

Members of the Neighborhood Youth Corps were also trained in the 
library's workshops to serve as recreation leaders for children at each 
Community Action Center. In return, for at least four hours a week of 
volunteer time for ten weeks, each volunteer received a certificate 
describing his training and hours of service. By utilizing volunteers, 
hundreds of children in minority group areas were reached who had 
not previously been library users. 

Santa Ana's acceptance and enthusiasm for the initial summer neigh- 
borhood library program encouraged the community services section 
to repeat "Operation Outreach" in 1969. Again, volunteers were 
trained at weekly workshops. However it became necessary to use 
junior high age volunteers as high school students wished paid positions. 

The difficulty of maintaining a continued, sustained interest on the 
part of younger volunteers resulted in a change in the program's ad- 
ministration, and in 1970 "Operation Outreach" became a staff-run 
program of one paraprofessional, supported by two college students 
hired on a part-time basis. More than 1,900 children attended the 10- 
week programs. 

Hildah Pemberton is Head of Community Services, Santa Ana Public Library.

By last year it was apparent the library's summer project had the inter- 
est and support of Santa Ana's Parks and Recreation department, as 
well as other service organizations. "Operation Outreach" spread away 
from set bookmobile stops and into areas where established audiences 
could be found to reach over 3,250 children in summer school classes, 
day camps, boys and girls clubs. The project again became a staff-run 
program, supported by one adult volunteer. 

As the library begins its fifth summer of reaching out through book 
recreation programs, staff members will continue to do the story-telling 
with the help of college-age volunteers. Nevertheless, there will be an 
innovation to the program. For the first time books will be carried on 
the Santa Ana Public Library minimobile and may be checked out by 
youngsters attending the hour-long programs of stories, songs and 
games. 

What "Operation Outreach" has accomplished by utilizing volunteer 
service these past summers can be told in statistics. Some 9,000 children 
in all areas of the city have been acquainted with books and the library. 
But the real accomplishment of the program cannot be told in statistics. 
How do you measure a child's new awareness of the joys of books, or 
his pleasure in listening to stories?

Stanislaus County Free Library Reaches Out 

Jane Hamed, Marcos Martinez, Roberta Welker, and Frank Ochoa 

The following group of articles describes the three main outreach 
programs run by the Stanislaus County Free Library. Our program in 
the migrant camps is in its second year of operation, while the commu- 
nity information service and the Intra-Community Library both began 
in the fall of 1971. 

Community Information Service 

Jane Hamed 

My formal job title in the Stanislaus County Free Library is "Commu- 
nity Information Agent," and while this sounds impressive, it's not very 
descriptive. When I first came here I spent a great deal of time explain- 
ing to everyone I met just exactly what my job was. After working a 
little while, though, I found that it became much more difficult for me 
to say what I was doing: the job changes constantly. As it started out, 
I was to provide information and reference service to low-income 
groups, from grass-roots types with a local goal, to those organized 
around and under the federal anti-poverty programs. 

I met a lot of leaders, directors, and organizers; I went to many 
meetings, and I did some research on the county. Soon I felt that I had 
a fair grasp of the history of some people and programs, and my knowl- 
edge was constantly increased through listening: everyone wanted to 
tell me about every other program. What is generally true in this county 
is that there is an "interlocking directorate" of people working in the 
various anti-poverty programs. They all know each other, and they 
know people in all the county agencies. A large part of my job is still 
simply keeping in touch with people. This way I know what is going on 
in the community, and it keeps everyone aware that I'm around to help 
with any research problems they may have. 

Along the way, I have found that it's much easier to explain what I 
do by way of examples. This usually brings a light of recognition, and 
probably some more work. Everyone is amazed that the library is send- 
ing someone out to do this sort of thing, even though it seems perfectly 
natural that the library, as an information center, should provide this 
kind of service. 

When I came several people warned me about one small town which 
had no services, a bad school, and a rather ingrown population prone 
to violence. I metxan organizer from there who was most concerned 
about the school. His kids had lived other places, and the stories they 
were bringing home were very bad, but proved nothing. The principal 
was defensive and evasive. I suggested that reading and intelligence 
test scores, if compared with others in the county, might provide a clue 
to the school's weaknesses. When I got them from the State Education 
Office in Sacramento, they certainly did. I also checked into the num- 
ber of children from the school who eventually graduated from the 
local consolidated high school, and this also proved to be a rather dam- 
ning statistic. All these figures were read out at a meeting of parents and 



358 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

community people, which the principal also attended, and they gene 
rated so much concern that he became much more amenable to talking 
with parents and actually discussing ways the school could be improved 
Since then, he and the organizer have visited an experimental school 
to see if any of their methods could be applied. This was an early, and 
rare, success. Most of the time it doesn't seem as if anything much 
happens here. 

People do constantly want statistics, and I have become quite well 
known at the County Planning, County Clerk's, and Assessor's offices 
Good use can be made of the figures on the amount of tax dollars that 
go out of a district, especially when nothing visible is coming back in. 
Although this is difficult to get, it is definitely public information. 

Besides this kind of work with local groups, there have also been 
several large research projects, one for the United Farm Workers Orga- 
nizing Committee — background on corporations and growers — and 
referrals for some individuals who've been located by other outreach 
workers. Once I took a Spanish-speaking lady down to the District 
Attorney's office to sign a statement against a roving photographer 
who'd gypped her. Another time we helped to get free glasses and an 
eye examination for a lady who couldn't afford either. Unfortunately, 
we just don't have much time to do this kind of thing, so we're now 
trying to prepare some handouts on basic rights, and community re- 
sources, in both English and Spanish, to be given out in grocery stores 
and meetings, or wherever people get together. 

Supplying information like this, prior to any specific request, is one 
of several new directions we're moving in. We are getting a videotape 
recorder and plan to originate some tapes, as well as film local events. 
I am also working more frequently now with potential community 
leaders, people who want to get things done but are not allied with any 
group. Things have already changed much since September, and I'm 
sure they'll continue to do so as we all learn more about the kind of 
information services this county needs. 

Biblioteca Campesina 

Marcos Martinez and Roberta Welker 

The Biblioteca Campesina or library services to the migrant farm 
worker was still a new and little-tested idea one year ago, but it was a 
concept that would sincerely serve the migrant family. 

It began with interested people in Migrant Education Region III 
(funded by the California State Department of Education with ESEA 
Title I Funds) in cooperation with Stanislaus County Free Library. 
Jointly, they were able to come to an agreement: a twenty-three-foot 
van (converted into a mobile library) plus the salary for two people 
would be the contribution from Migrant Education Region III. 

There was an eagerness to test the idea, so the Stanislaus County 
Library enthusiastically set the "wheels in motion." The library's role 
was to hire the staff, supervise the project, and supply books and materi- 
als, including films. May 1, 1971 marked the beginning. 






VOLUME 67, NO. 3, SUMMER, 1972 359 

It had been noted that the majority of the migrants who come to 
harvest and settle temporarily in the county are Spanish-speaking and 
of Mexican descent. Consequently, partial success of the library de- 
pended upon language communication and intercultural relations. 
With this in mind, two bilingual people were hired to staff the Bibli- 
oteca Campesina— one a Chicano with a migrant background. 

It was decided that the library would operate in the county's three 
Housing Authority Migrant Camps, which have the capacity to house 
one hundred and ninety-four migrant families. Library services would 
be directed toward the people who have been neglected by the educa- 
tional institutions, and migrant children would be the priority. 

Migrant Education Project guidelines divide the migrant into first 
and second class, and further define the first class migrants as farm 
workers' children who have moved within a one-year period, second 
class as those who have moved within a five-year period. For the most 
part, the "Biblioteca Campesina" provided services to the low-income 
agricultural workers' children, both first and second class migrants. 

In May, 1972, the Biblioteca Campesina again opened its doors during 
the afternoons and evenings to the migrant families in Stanislaus Coun- 
ty. 

After purchasing two to three thousand books and three hundred 
records to stock the van, the traveling library began to provide children 
and youth access to Spanish and English books, to encourage migrant 
children to read, and to provide families with pleasurable opportunities 
to get acquainted with books and library services. 

Since the migrant people are reluctant and find it difficult to use the 
traditional library services, the Biblioteca is used enthusiastically. The 
children are anxious to carry home books in Spanish and English: easy 
readers, the Golden Books, The Elf Books, Dr. Seuss, Eastman, Scarry, 
and many more, mainly in paperback. For the intermediate reading 
ages there are Charlie Brown books, Dennis the Menace series, teen- 
age romance stories, and sports literature. For the young adult and 
parents the Biblioteca provides graphic novels (with cartoon-like draw- 
ings) , information manuals on child and infant care, birth control infor- 
mation, cooking books, sewing and knitting books, an encyclopedia in 
Spanish, dictionaries, English self-taught manuals, various periodicals 
and a daily paper in Spanish. 

One of the three federal camps is predominantly Spanish-speaking 
and the other two are bilingual, therefore movies in Spanish and Eng- 
| lish are in demand. The movies shown are usually action-filled films or 
cartoons. Due to the limited understanding of English, a narrated film 
doesn't hold their attention, but films such as Little Hiawatha, Peter 
and the Wolf, and Ferdinand and the Bull can be shown over and over 
with equal response. 

During the afternoons there are other activities for the children and 
families. The library has a reading hour in which a staff member sits on 
the lawn surrounded by children and presents stories with visual fig- 
ures, pictures or puppets. With the help of the County Free Library 
Children's Department, there will be puppet shows and additional ex- 



360 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 






periences for the children. 

The van also serves as an information center. General information 
and pamphlets on health, birth control, disease, immunizations, and 
announcements of community meetings and activities are available in 
Spanish and English. If particular information is not available, the staff 
finds the information wanted by the migrant people. 

The process of circulating books is simple: the name of the patron and 
the number of books are written on check-out slips of different colors 
to distinguish age groups. At the end of the day, the check-out slips are 
counted and tabulated according to age groups: children, youth, and 
adults. No fines are imposed on books returned late or damaged. 

The Biblioteca encourages the people to come without fears, since 
there is no cost. 

The library exposes the children to books and related experiences. 
The children are happy to see the van arrive. It offers a place to go, to 
find a favorite book, to listen to records, to relax and browse through 
books and periodicals. 

Intra-Community Library 

Frank Ochoa 

"The poor shall always be with us" is a relative statement, Biblical or 
not. Whether or not they shall always be with us is academic, they are 
certainly with us now. 

Poverty is a definite part of the world in which we as librarians live 
and function. The poor are not only with us, but seem to be in the 
majority; certainly so in rural Stanislaus County. At the same time, 
library services to poverty areas have not been effective. Perhaps part 
of the reason has been that traditionally libraries have not concerned 
themselves very much with the poor and their specific needs and prob- 
lems. 

Last December, the Stanislaus County Free Library looked at this 
neglected majority and reasoned that the traditional approach need not 
necessarily be sacred, particularly if it was not accomplishing its pur- 
pose. 

If people in low-income areas were not coming to us, then we would 
come to them. The result of this simple deduction was the Intra-Com- 
munity Library. The objective was as simple — reach and serve the 
poverty areas of the county. Simplicity can, at times, be the ultimate 
complexity. To reach poverty areas in a rural situation, the first priority 
is mobility. The second priority is locating the areas to be served. Since 
we could not possibly serve all the poverty areas with one van and 40 
hours, the selection of areas became important. Only the most impover- 
ished areas were to be served first. 

After locating the areas, scheduling was the next consideration. This 
must be approached in a realistic manner — their needs and not our 
convenience. Be there when the people are there. This means going out 
late and staying late. We would start late in the afternoon and return 
in the late evening.

The third of the simple complexities was material. The poor come in 
all colors and ages and cultural backgrounds. In Stanislaus county this 
means bilingual material. Spanish is the second language of our county. 

Appropriate material for poverty areas (English and Spanish) does 
not seem to be available. The key to what is appropriate is practicality — 
food buying and selecting, making of clothes, gardening, self-improve- 
ment, such as better English. The type of material which will serve an 
immediate need, with immediate or close to immediate results. Enter- 
tainment or escape literature is highly in demand and highly used we 
have found. In all cases, the needs of the people served should be the 
main consideration. What are their needs and what will they use? 

Knowing the areas and the needs in this manner, the Intra-Commu- 
nity Library has endeavored to fill the needs as those needs became 
apparent to us. Individuals began coming to us with their specific needs. 
So we became a referral service. Mrs. Jones in Keyes needed glasses and 
couldn't afford them. We got her in touch with the local Lions Club and 
they paid for the eye examination and the glasses. Mrs. Rodriquez in 
Waterford needed special material and help with her three retarded 
children. So we got a local organization which could counsel and advise 
her and her family.

In exchange for meaningful service, the Intra-Community Library 
got support from the people served. Circulation went from nothing in 
December to over 6,000 in February. In summation, poverty areas need 
special services and the traditional county library can provide them 
using the resources at hand and some imagination.

Yolo County Brings the "Biblioteca" Alive 

Soledad Lizana 

Yolo County was completely unknown to me a year and a half ago 
when I came from Chile, accompanying my husband who is to obtain 
a Ph.D. in Plant Physiology, at the University of California, Davis. In 
Chile, I obtained a leave of absence from my job as one of the librarians 
of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Santiago, and in the U.S. I became 
Yolo County's Children's Librarian. 

The Yolo County Library serves approximately 72,000 people through 
nine libraries and a bookmobile, in an area of 1,029 square miles. Yolo 
County is the site of a University, is on the outskirts of a big city (Sac- 
ramento) , and contains several small rural towns, which gives the coun- 
ty a variety of people to serve. The Mexican population is 10 to 12%, 
all scattered in the different towns. It is very difficult to find all of them 
in one place and there is not much communication between one group 
or the other. 

Soon after I arrived in Yolo County, as I walked in the streets of 
Woodland (where our headquarters are) to the nearest snack bar, I 
would hear many people speaking Spanish. Next, I discovered that in 
a nearby retail shop, which sells Spanish magazines and newspapers, 
they were doing, in these alone, $1,000 worth of business a month, and 
suddenly I had something to think about: ALL THOSE POTENTIAL 
READERS. 

So Mary Stephens, the County Librarian, considering the fact of the 
10% of Mexicans, gave me 10% of the book budget to spend on Spanish 
material and English material that would be of special interest to these 
people. So with this in hand I had to start knowing the community so 
the books bought would not be turned into shelf sitters. What to do first? 
Find out where the Spanish people meet and try to be invited to their 
meetings. So I started to go to Concilio meetings. The Concilios, in our 
county, are groups of Mexican people who meet once a month and work 
on projects to benefit their group. With a box full of Spanish books and 
some library registration cards, I appeared like a selling agent, and I 
offered the product: books and magazines in Spanish and English; 
FREE FOR EVERBODY AND FOR EVERYONE TO USE; come to the 
library and we will obtain, if it is possible, the book you need! Slowly, 
slowly after talking with all sorts of different people the word gets 
around and the people start coming in through a door that they have 
never crossed. 

The local Catholic priest has been of great help because he has a 
Spanish mass and a newsletter where he informs the people of what is 
happening in the library. In some stores, little signs in both languages 
inviting people to come to the library have been very good. Articles in 
the local newspapers, with photographs of people from the community, 
have helped. Where there is a thrift store or "Segunda" in the commu- 
nity I have gone at the time it is open. I take a table and chair and our

most attractive books; I sometimes choose a five-cent sale day, and go 
I talk briefly with the people when they come in, and after they have 
purchased, then tell what I am doing there and where they can borrow 
those FREE Spanish books for three weeks. If the library is nearby, I 
go immediately with them to get them registered, and translate what 
they are signing. Application cards in both languages will be available 
soon, in our county. I introduce these Spanish-speaking people to the 
"LIBRARY" or "LIBRERIA," the words they are used to using, even 
though "LIBRERIA" is not the correct word, but I also softly repeat 
"BIBLIOTECA," which is the correct word. 

In many counties, there is an Office of Economic Opportunity; well, 
they work closely with Mexican- Americans. I go there and talk with 
everyone, telling them what I am trying to do, so they too can be a 
liaison with the community. The most important thing is to let the 
community that you are serving know what your library is trying to do; 
then to encourage the people of the community to advise you in what 
materials to get for them. Now, if you do not speak Spanish you have 
to get someone from the community to help you; then you can do as 
good a job as if you spoke the language. 

We have a bookmobile, not a big one, a 13-year-old, newly painted 
yellow and blue "bookie" with 1500 books in it. With it we serve com- 
munities, English or Spanish, that have little access to branches, or 
communities where there is a need to motivate the people to use the 
branch. The bookmobile also goes to certain elementary schools, which 
have no libraries. On the bookmobile are four shelves of books in Span- 
ish, some children's books, and some adult. When we go to a school 
where many Mexican children are, our juvenile collection is swept 
clear. We go also to a low-income housing development, and there we 
find adults who speak Spanish and Engish, and their children are bilin- 
gual, these people take both English and Spanish books from both the 
adult and the children's collections. At another low-income stop, most 
of the adults speak only Spanish, but their children are bilingual. We 
have gone during past summers to one migrant-labor camp, but this 
year we will go weekly to the two county camps during evening hours. 

I remember, once, when I was on the bookmobile, a group of six 
dark-haired children kept looking at the bookmobile but would not get 
in. After talking to them for awhile they finally decided to get in but 
they wanted "no books." Some weeks later, they had become acquaint- 
ed with the bookmobile and had started checking out. They were a 
whole family. One day they came and returned the cards because their 
mother said, "No more books," but their eyes were still eagerly looking 
at the shelves. I asked them if they would like me to go and talk with 
their mother, and they all said "yes." So I knocked at the door and 
waited ten minutes; nobody came, so I knocked again and again when 
suddenly the door was opened a little, and a man's voice said "What do 
you want ?" I quickly explained to him, in Spanish, how his children 
were interested in reading, and he said, "Well we cannot keep track of 
the books because we are nine and if they tear one I cannot afford to

pay it." So finally we agreed that the eldest daughter would keep the 
library card and check out one book weekly. For a while, that was really 
something when they were picking the book; now all of them have their 
library cards back and they all check out five books each. Not a book 
has been torn. 

We have distributed handouts, in both languages, which explain 
about the library and bookmobile, and which invite people to use the 
library. I have taken books to school exhibits on the Fifth of May, and 

I have contacted the local Head Start and Migrant Education offices. I 
pave told stories in Spanish to some Head Start classes and to children 

II contacted through Migrant Education. In school districts where the 
schools have approved a bilingual program, when those children visit 
jthe library, I have offered a bilingual story time. At the bilingual story 
jhour, I tell one story in English, then one in Spanish, or sometimes tell 
pie same story in first Spanish and then English. In collaboration with 
another librarian, I prepared a workshop for teachers of Head Start, to 
let them know what the library offered in both languages for preschool 
children. Mountain- Valley Library System (the system to which Yolo 
County Library belongs) is buying Spanish-language films. I agreed to 
receive them for previewing. I took them out to various people in the 
community till I found a young Mexican man who was willing to pre- 
view them on weekends with groups of people of his community.

The Book Collection 

This, I think, is a very difficult matter because it is very hard to do 
a good selection when you are limited by budget and thus, every book 
must be one that will be appealing and liked and read. The best thing 
to do is to try to go to a Spanish bookstore with an idea in mind of what 
your patrons need or to go to buy the books with somebody of the 
community who is interested in the library. When you buy by catalog, 
you can have surprises; the book, when it arrives, may be quite different 
to what you expected from the catalog description, or the cover may 
be soiled from the time that the book has been in storage. If you cannot 
go to a bookstore, find out what library near you has a Spanish collection 
and use it as your book selection place. Most of the Spanish-speaking 
people of our area are of Mexican descent so our emphasis is on getting 
as many Mexican books and magazines as we can. The people are very 
interested in reading about the history of Mexico and biographies of 
their most important figures. But fiction is the winner. Unfortunately, 
when you go to the bookstore, most of the books are non-fiction and 
even if you bring almost all the fiction offered, it is never enough. Books 
on car repair or TV or radio repair are very popular, and they are 
needed. Cookery, child care, sewing, biographies of Mexican authors, 
books on the different Indians of Mexico are used, but certain other 
non-fiction that we have on the shelves is not used very frequently. My 
feeling is that those titles have to be there, anyway, so the people can 
rely on having them when they need them, and can count on the library 
as a place they can go to when they have a problem. Dictionaries, 
Spanish-English and English-Spanish as well as Spanish-Spanish, are 
very popular. Children enjoy their parents reading to them the fairy 
tales, and many mothers are teaching the children how to read in 
Spanish, through our books. Older children who have come recently 
from Mexico will enjoy reading novels which their schoolmates are 
reading in English and will be able to read The Island of the Blue 
Dolphins in both languages. Magazines are a safe buy; they circulate 
well, and people come back to get each issue. If you are starting to build 
a collection, novels, westerns, romances and history of Mexico will be 
your most attractive material. 

Remember that the people want to read on their level and not on the 
librarian's level; that has to be considered if you want your collection 
to be ALIVE. There are no recipes you can apply, only KNOW YOUR 
COMMUNITY and work with the individuals in it. Your success in this 
will be reflected in the success of your operation. It is a very interesting 
and challenging work to do. As a Latin American, I can easily under- 
stand the problem that another Latin American can face in front of an 
institution called "Library" or "Biblioteca," which has not had a mean- 
ing in his youth. In Latin America, one seldom goes to a library until 
one gets to the university, and only a small percentage are that fortu- 
nate. So remember, behind the word "library," many times there is no 
meaning, and that is what WE have to build up.

Reaching the Unreached Public 

John G. Fetro& 

A very wise man — not a librarian — recently said to me that he could 
not understand why librarians, since they are surrounded by books and 
information sources, are so inept in utilizing this material in operating 
their libraries. Alarming to him was not only the ineptness in utilizing 
the material but the fact that the librarians he dealt with seemed totally 
unaware of the existence of this available material. 

Strangely enough, not too long afterwards at a meeting of librarians, 
his observations were confirmed when a librarian asked a library school 
teacher why library schools didn't teach courses in advertising and 
public relations for libraries and courses in how to make displays for 
library use. 

The observation by the librarian was interesting because it implied 
that every problem about a library is unique and until the true light is 
shown by a library school solutions cannot be found. Of course, since 
management courses in library schools draw the least enthusiasm from 
students, it might be thought that as far as improving the operations of 
the library is concerned even the addition of more courses in this fash- 
ion would have little effect on library operations. 

In its most basic elements, it should be noted that a library is essential- 
ly no different from any business, and its similarities, particularly to a 
retail establishment such as a department store, are striking. Both li- 
braries and department stores, for instance, share the following prob- 
lems: 

1. Acquiring stock, becoming familiar with what dealers are offering, 
mechanical problems of ordering, paying bills. 

2. Arranging stock, grouping items by department, finding items 
when the patron asks for them. 

3. Training personnel in what stock the store has and how to deal 
with customers. 

4. Attracting patrons by using advertising and other promotional 
events. 

5. Moving patrons around the building efficiently by the use of logi- 
cal layout of the building and by the use of directional signs. 

6. Disposing of material when there is no demand for it. 

Of course, it might be argued that this listing of parallels ignores the 
pressing issues of today's libraries such as intellectual freedom, censor- 
ship, social injustice and other such matters. Yet with all the money in 
the world what difference does intellectual freedom make if libraries 
do not know how to acquire books and to arrange and promote them 
so that the public has access to them? What good does a desire to end 
social injustice do if libraries do not know how to attract patrons? Will 
potential patrons accustomed to the manner in which merchandise is 
displayed in stores be attracted to a collection, no matter how broad and

well balanced, if it is sloppily displayed? 

Too little attention is paid to pointing out how the lack of manage- 
ment skills is reducing the effectiveness of libraries. It is easier to attack 
I ['them" for trying to remove books from the shelves than to realize that 
I much of the problems are created by the libraries themselves by failing 
to organize themselves properly. How many libraries have working 
book selection policies? Training programs? Effective communication 
systems within all departments of the library? A public relations pro- 
fgram? Policy and procedure manuals? 

Some recent material has focused attention on the shortcomings of 
library management. For instance, Lawrence Kipp's article "Manage- 
ment Literature for Librarians" in the January 15, 1971 Library Journal, 
while basically a review of books on management, notes that "it is hard 
to look at American libraries without realizing the need for more man- 
agement skills. Apallingly bad management practices are common." 

The July 1971 issue of Library Trends devoted to "Personnel Devel- 
opment and Continuing Education in Libraries" provides a variety of 
material confirming the lack of basic good management practices in 
libraries. 

If a librarian understands management techniques there is a tremen- 
dous amount of material published for use by business that can be 
adapted effectively to library situations. 

One interesting approach that could be used would be to utilize 
Janalyses of characteristics of segments of the public and to use these in 
designing programs to promote the library, attract patrons, or assist 
jbook collection development. 

As an example of what I mean I list several studies which have ap- 
jpeared recently. To indicate how available this data is to even the 
smaller library, the sources of the data are noted, not the basic source 
of the entire study on which the news article was based. This should 
indicate how available this type of data is in sources most librarians 
'should have within their grasp. Following the summary of the study are 
suggestions on how the data can be applied to a library program which 
seeks to attract people to the library. 

An approach of this sort is not unique. An article in Business Week 
noted that selective selling or market segmentation will be increasingly 
used in the future by marketing men. The breakdown of consumers by 
age group, income, education, geography, ethnic background, and use 
patterns will accelerate, according to this article, as business men seek 
to reach the maximum market for their product.* Should not libraries 
use this approach for the same purpose, not by guessing but systemati- 
cally and intelligently; not by jumping on a bandwagon after it is going 
but by logical innovative planning?

ETHEL S. CROCKETT, California State Librarian 

Ethel S. Crockett, new California State Librarian, took office on Au-

Governor Ed Reinecke. 

Mrs. Crockett came to the State Library from City College of San 
Francisco, where she had been Director of Library Services since 1968. 
Before that she had served as a General Librarian at San Jose City 
College, 1962-1968, during one year of which time she was Acting Di- 
rector of Library Services. She had also served as Librarian at Sequoia 
High School, Redwood City, and as Children's Librarian at the Corning 
(New York) Memorial Library. She received her B.A. from Vassar Col- 
lege and her M.A. in Librarianship from San Jose State College. 

Mrs. Crockett has been active in such professional organizations as 
the American Library Association, the California Library Association, 
the Special Libraries Association, and the California Association of 
School Librarians. She was Chairman of CLA's Library Development 
and Standards Committee in 1970, and a member of the Committee in 
1971 when it drafted The California Library Network: A Master Plan, 
which was adopted by the Association at its annual conference in De- 
cember, 1971. She was representative for the Community Colleges Di- 
vision of CLA at the Library Systems Seminar, "Library Systems for the

sponsored by City College of San Francisco and funded by the U.S. 
Office of Health, Education and Welfare, Bureau of Libraries and Edu- 
cational Technology.

membership in the Book Club of California and in the Private Press 
Association (England) . Other special interests are art collecting, travel, 
and gardening, especially bonsai and fuchsias. 

The California State Library welcomes Ethel S. Crockett as its new 
State Librarian.

CALIFORNIA LIBRARY LAWS 

1971-72 CALIFORNIA LEGAL DEVELOPMENTS FOR LIBRARIES 

Cy H. Silver 
Law Librarian 
California State Library 

LEGISLATION 

One of the major incentives for creation of agencies by joint exercise 
of powers is to avoid the need of a bond election, especially one that 
requires an extraordinary majority for passage. A late 1971 amendment 
to Government Code Sec. 6547 et seq. makes joint powers bonds now 
subject to a possible referendum. Further, there must be a one-year 
waiting period before attempting to issue new bonds for the same 
purpose. 

County libraries which use revolving fund accounts of up to $10,000 
under Government Code Sec. 29321 may have the amount increased to 
$25,000, under provisions of Chapter 240 of the Statutes of 1972. 

Visitors to the State Library in summer, starting in 1973, will no 
longer need to be in as much discomfort as in the past. Item 300.5 of the 
Budget Act of 1972 provides funds for installation of air conditioning in 
the Library and Courts Building. 

COURT DECISIONS 

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the right of California state prison 
inmates to have use of adequate law libraries or of other meaningful 
access to legal knowledge. Gilmore v. Lynch, 319 F. Supp. 105 (N.D. Cal 
1970) , affdper curiam subnom. Younger v. Gilmore, 404 U.S. 15 (1971) . 

Ed. note: This issue contains a basic compilation of California library laws, revised and 
reissued complete. It replaces the compilation published in the Fall, 1971 NNCL, which 
is now superseded. 

As in previous years, the closing date of June 30 was established for the contents of this 
issue. Pertinent legislation enacted and signed into law after June 30, 1972 has not been 
included.

27000. Legislative declaration. The Legislature hereby declares 
that it is in the interest of the people and of the state that there be a 
general diffusion of knowledge and intelligence through the establish- 
ment and operation of public libraries. Such diffusion is a matter of 
general concern inasmuch as it is the duty of the state to provide 
encouragement to the voluntary lifelong learning of the people of the 
state. 

The Legislature further declares that the public library is a supple- 
ment to the formal system of free public education, and a source of 
information and inspiration to persons of all ages, and a resource for 
continuing education and re-education beyond the years of formal edu- 
cation, and as such deserves adequate financial support from govern- 
ment at all levels. 

27001. Division of libraries. There is in the Department of Educa- 
tion the Division of Libraries. 

NOTE — The State Library was governed by a board of trustees elected by the Legislature from 
1861 (Stats. 1861:45, Ch. 57) until 1899; by a board of trustees appointed by the governor from 1899 
(Stats. 1899:30, Ch. 31) until 1921; by the Board of Control in the Department of Finance from 1921 
(Stats. 1921:1027, Ch. 603) until 1927. Since 1927 it has been a division of the Department of Education 
(Stats. 1927:969, Ch. 579) . 

27002. State Librarian. The division shall be in charge of a chief 
who shall be a technically trained librarian and shall be known as the

public libraries of the state may be accepted for deposit, under agree- 
ments entered into by the State Librarian and the public libraries con- 
cerned, whereby materials which should be preserved but are rarely 
used in the region may be stored and made available for use under the 
same conditions that apply to materials in the State Library.

history of the state. 

(i) Serve as regional library for the blind, in co-operation with the

public libraries, to librarians and library authorities, and assist all other

brary services. 

(k) Serve as the central reference and research library for the depart- 
ments of state government and maintain adequate legislative reference 
and research library services for the Legislature. 

(/) Acquire, organize and supply books and other library informa- 
tional and reference materials to supplement the collections of other

scholarly works, to the end that through an established interlibrary loan 
system, the people of the state shall have access to the full range of 
reference and informational materials. 

(m) Make studies and surveys of public library needs and adopt rules 
and regulations for the allocation of federal funds to public libraries.

or to persons who are visually or physically handicapped to such an 
extent that they are unable to read conventional printed materials, in

recordings shall be selected by the State Library on the same basis as

duplicate any braille book master, other than textbook masters, pre- 
sented by any legally blind person directly to the State Librarian for

27152. Establishment. The board of supervisors of any county may 
establish at the county seat or elsewhere in the county, a county free 
library for that part of the county lying outside of cities maintaining free 
public libraries, and outside of library districts maintaining district li- 
braries, and for all such additional portions o'f the county as may elect 
to become a part of, or to participate in, the county free library system 
as provided in this chapter (commencing at Section 27151). 

27153. Notice. At least once a week for two successive weeks prior 
to taking any action, the board of supervisors shall publish, in a newspa- 
per designated by it and published in the county, notice of the contem- 
plated action, giving the date of the meeting at which the action is 
proposed to be taken. 

27154. Participation of city and library district libraries. After the 
establishment of a county free library, the board of trustees, common 
council, or other legislative body of any city in the county maintaining 
a free public library, or the board of trustees of any library district 
maintaining a district library, may notify the board of supervisors that 
the city or library district desires to become a part of the county free 
library system. Thereafter the city or library district shall be a part of 
the system and its inhabitants shall be entitled to the benefits of the 
county free library, and the property within the city or library district 
shall be liable to taxes levied for county free library purposes. 

27155. Withdrawal. The board of trustees, common council, or 
other legislative body of any city or the board of trustees of any library 
district may on or before February 1st of any year, notify the board of 
supervisors that the city or library district no longer desires to be a part 
of the county free library system. Thereafter the city or library district 
shall cease to participate in the benefits of the county free library, and 
the property situated in the city or library district shall not be liable to 
taxes for county free library purposes. 

27156. Effective date of withdrawal. If the notice is given after 
February 1st of any year, the property situated in the city or library 
district shall be liable to taxes for county free library purposes during

other legislative body of any city, or the board of trustees of any library 



Volume 67, No. 4, Fall, 1972 11

proposed to be taken. 

27158. Contracts with cities. The board of supervisors of any coun- 
ty in which a county free library has been established may enter into

same privileges of the county free library as are granted to, or enjoyed 
by, the residents of the county outside of the city, or such privileges as 
are agreed upon in the contract, upon such consideration named in the 
contract as is agreed upon, to be paid into the county free library fund.

established. Upon the establishment of any county free library, the 



12 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

contract may be terminated upon such terms as may be agreed upon 
by the parties thereto, or may continue for the term thereof.
